Does Chris Christie Have Too Much Swagger to Be Vice President?
As Mitt Romney’s announcement of a GOP vice presidential candidate looms nearer and nearer, many in Washington—and elsewhere—are speculating as to the potential influence New Jersey Governor Chris Christie might have over the election. As Romney and Christie prepare to attend a GOP fundraiser on Tuesday night in the Garden State, some are wondering if Christie’s personality—or swagger, if you will—would overshadow Mitt Romney during a time when GOP leaders would want the focus to be on their candidate (and the economy’s struggles under Obama’s watch). Others are suggesting that the favorable response to Chris Christie in New Jersey might get picked up by, ahem, Philadelphia news outlets and help a Romney/Christie ticket in Pennsylvania. [CBS News]
