File photo of New Jersey Governor-elect Christie greeting supporters before delivering his victory speech in Parsippany
New Jersey Governor-elect Chris Christie greets supporters before delivering his victory speech at election night headquarters in Parsippany, New Jersey, in this November 3, 2009 file photo. He's gruff, not so charismatic and new to elected politics, but some see New Jersey Governor Christie as the type of politician who might bridge the Tea Party and mainstream Republicans.
