    9 hrs ago | McClatchy

    After bolting to national prominence on a record of bringing public employee unions to heel and taming runaway pension costs like those that have challenged state governments across the country, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie hit a very large hurdle recently.

    4 hrs ago | NorthJersey.com

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told California Republicans on Saturday that the party should not rush to choose a 2016 presidential nominee because of pressure from pollsters, pundits and GOP donors. "I promise you that over the next few months, you will see article after article arguing that our party can't afford a long nomination battle, we need to pick a nominee as soon as possible, that we have to unite behind whatever candidate appears to have the most money, the most endorsements or the best press coverage," Christie told about 500 lunch guests Saturday at the California Republican Party's spring convention in Sacramento.

    6 hrs ago | The Newark Star-Ledger

    TRENTON - For much of his time in Trenton, Gov. Chris Christie has been optimistic in his predictions of how much cash Trenton would get from state taxes, at times saying there was a "Jersey comeback" and trying to prod lawmakers into cutting taxes. But as New Jersey's economy failed to rev up tax revenues, some of those budgets never lived up to the Republican governor's expectations, cutting perilous holes in state finances.

    7 hrs ago | The Jersey Journal

    The debate over filling vacancies on the Pinelands Commission with responsible people has often been an ugly but fair fight, but now it's been subverted with a political gambit fashioned by the governor and his legislative Sancho Panza. In the end, Gov. Christie and state Senate President Steve Sweeney won the only way they could - by stacking the deck on the Judiciary Committee that advanced Robert Barr's nomination to the full Senate, a remarkable development since the same committee found him disingenuous and unqualified the first two times they showed him the door.
