Christie's GOP Campaigning Takes Him To Ohio

Matt Katz | September 30, 2014

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's role as head of the Republican Governors' Association will see him travel to six state in eight days campaigning for GOP candidates across the country.

On Monday, he was in Ohio, stumping for the Buckeye State's incumbent Republican executive John Kasich. At an event in suburban Cleveland, Gov. Christie told voters that giving Gov. Kasich a resounding victory will send a message that Republican policies are working.

"I am here for one reason and one reason only, and his name is John Kasich," said Gov. Christie. Yet, many Republicans thought there was a second reason why the New Jersey Governor was in Ohio: It is arguably the most important presidential swing state in the country. 

Ohio Republicans say they like Chistie because he "fixed New Jersey" and because of his leadership after Sandy. They also think, incorrectly, that he has already been exonerated over last year's lane closures at the George Washington Bridge.
