Gov. Chris Christie promises to bring his brash, take-no-prisoners attitude to Tampa tonight, when he delivers the keynote address at the 2012 Republican National Convention. Christie’s soundbites and rhetorical style have already earned him the sobriquet “Gov. YouTube,” and it’s a safe bet that this high-profile platform will give him more than one opportunity to live up to that nickname.

If you’re interested in having your say, you can participate in a live online chat, hosted by our partners at NJPR/WNYC radio’s “It’s a Free Country,” of the governor’s address. You can join the chat here.

Following the governor’s Tuesday night address, NJ Spotlight’s John Mooney, joined by our partners and pundits across the state, will deliver a close-up commentary on the Christie keynote — with a particular focus on how Christie’s speech may affect New Jersey. The link will be live when the governor wraps up his address.

If there’s anything you missed on the comments portion of our presentation or simply want to hear the assessment again, the post-speech wrap-up will also be archived on YouTube.
