Governor Christie’s Favorite Story

Matt Katz | February 11, 2015

This week, Governor Christie made his 13th appearance in Iowa in the past five years.

As he often does at campaign speeches, he tells a powerful, personal story about his mother on her deathbed. On the Christie Tracker Podcast we’ll take a closer look at the story - and the larger purpose it serves.

Also, as the governor continues to drum up support for a possible presidential run, he’s dealing with growing frustration among Republicans in New Jersey. We’ll talk about that dissatisfaction with Republican Strategist, Deirdre Woodbyrne.

Plus, we’ll get into the details about the “Chairman’s Flight.” David Samson, the former Chairman of the Port Authority, who has been entangled in the investigations surrounding Bridgegate, is now being investigated by federal prosecutors about a United Airlines flight route that went direct from Newark to an airport in South Carolina -- 50 miles from where he has a weekend home.

Host David Furst runs down the governor's week with New Jersey Public Radio's Matt Katz and Tom Moran, editorial page editor for The Star-Ledger.
