Chris Christie is interested in becoming the new head of the Republican National Committee
Reince Priebus is stepping down has head of the Republican National Committee to become Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff and it is now being reported that Chris Christie is interested in becoming the new head of the Republican National Committee. Here is more:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is expressing serious interest in the job of Republican National Committee chairman — and he’s getting an audience to make his case.
Christie told senior members of Donald Trump’s presidential transition team on Thursday morning that he is interested in the post, according to three sources familiar with the talks. One person said the governor had embarked on an aggressive, “full-court press” in hopes of getting the chairmanship.
Christie began seriously considering the job over the last week and has concluded that he would be a solid fit, several of his aides said.
So what are his qualifications?
Some Christie aides, however, believe that their boss, who formerly chaired the Republican Governors Association and has relationships with many of the party’s donors, would make a natural RNC chair.
Christie also has a gift for political combat, a skill needed for the chairmanship.
Okay, I can see that: he has led the Republican Governors Association and he knows many party donors, which is a plus for the position, and he certainly will not back down from a political fight. Those are all pluses, however I still see this every time I think of Chris Christie:
And I still cannot help but think this was a major reason why Mitt Romney lost to Barack Obama in 2012.
