Chris Christie says his gig leading the Republican Governors Association is like being a professional soldier who hops from war to war.
Check it out:
“I’m a mercenary in this job,” the New Jersey governor said Tuesday morning, while campaigning inside a pancake house with Maryland’s Republican gubernatorial candidate. “I go to places where we can win.”
Christie was making the point that Republican Larry Hogan can actually beat Democratic nominee Anthony Brown despite running in this deeply-blue state.
But his comments also made a larger point about himself. Like a mercenary, Christie gets handsomely paid for fighting someone else’s war.
