Christie: ‘It’s Good to be Back and I’ll See You Again’

David Furst | May 14, 2015 | Katz on Christie

Gov. Christie is stopping at diners, holding town halls and pressing the flesh in weekly trips to New Hampshire to convince voters that he’s a viable candidate.

Jonathan Rauch, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, is challenging the idea that anyone involved in creating a week-long traffic jam at the George Washington Bridge should go to jail. He offers a spirited defense of machine politics and tells host David Furst that government works best when politicians can help supporters and punish defectors.
