New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was courted as a Republican presidential candidate in 2012, will be here in December for a public rally to raise funds for Gov. Butch Otter. "We are real excited that Gov. Christie is coming to support Gov. Otter," said Jayson Ronk, Otter's campaign manager. Christie won his bid for governor of New Jersey on Tuesday with a record-setting 60 percent of the vote against his Democratic challenger, state Sen. Barbara Buono. In doing so, Christie won over his own party base, overcame a backlash from the tea party, won a majority of the women's vote, and did very well among minorities. He also took more than 30 percent of the Democratic voters of New Jersey/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
