He must still be upset about what happened to him in the 2016 primary.
Otherwise, how else could you explain Chris Christie’s deep desire to discredit Donald J. Trump?
Appearing on ABC, former New Jersey Governor Christie, a “Republican,” said that Donald’s “grip on the party is diminishing.”
“You’ve got the Republican Governors Association, which, for the first time in my memory, is getting involved in primaries against Donald Trump in Georgia, in Idaho, in Alabama, in Ohio, and I’m telling you right this morning — I’ll put myself on the line that the Republican incumbent governors are going to win all four of those primaries.”
“So, what does it mean?” responded host Jonathan Karl.
“What it means is that his grip on the party is diminishing, and it’s not just when he’s on the ballot because remember back in 2018 — he made a lot of endorsements in 2018 where a lot of upsets occurred because of his endorsement,” Christie said. “One of the biggest being Ron DeSantis in Florida.”
Christie concluded by saying that “Governor DeSantis was double digits behind Adam Putnam, who was the agriculture commissioner and the odds on favorite to win that race when Donald Trump endorsed. So, this is much different than the last time he wasn’t on the ballot, which was 2018.”
