Chris Christie Was at the Phillies Game on Sunday Night and Knew About bin Laden’s Death 90 Minutes Early

Those "U-S-A!" chants came as no surprise to the N.J. governor

Avid Mets fan and N.J. guv Chris Christie was in attendance at Sunday’s game against the Phillies when the crowds starting chanting “U-S-A! U-S-A!” in response to the news that Osama bin Laden had been killed. This came as no surprise to Christie who had received a message from Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano alerting him of the news per a directive from President Obama who “thought the guv should know ahead of time, given the number of New Jerseyans killed on Sept. 11.” [Christie Chronicles]
