Christy won't survive re-election next year. There is no one now within the GOP who wants to get within a mile of him. He's that toxic. Here's what will happen, the DNC will find and fund a radical Progressive to run against Christy next year. The MSM will paint this raidcal as a moderate populist. The White House will then go full bore and do everything it can do to defeat Christy. And not one Republican outside of New Jersey will give him money or support.
Christy will lose re-election and you will hear no more of him outside of MSNBC and NPR.
