Christie files Candidacy Papers

| 3 Comments
According to NJ.com, former U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie is filing papers today to become a gubernatorial candidate.  Here's an excerpt from the article:

Former U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie said he is filing papers today saying he is a candidate for New Jersey governor this year.

In an e-mail to supporters, Christie said he plans a formal announcement in the first week in February.  "We can fix our broken state and make it more affordable for all New Jersey families," Christie wrote.

The popular 46-year-old Republican from Morris County is considered by some to be the strongest possible challenger to Democratic incumbent Gov. Jon Corzine. Christie's filing comes after a headline-grabbing run as a corruption-busting prosecutor who ended the careers of some of New Jersey's most powerful politicians.

Corzine's office had no immediate comment. (Corzine is mum, while GOP rival say they were prepared for Christie candidacy)  Christie was not immediately available for comment. In his e-mail, he lamented the economic and political conditions in the state.

nice guy, good prosecutor, would be in way over his head as governor

Spitzer's advice to Christie: pay in cash, not by wire transfer.

A corruption busting prosecutor who wants to become Gov. Hmmm, why does that sound familiar. Not sure if I could vote for someone with two first names.
