Interesting Perspective from Pete da tech guy that makes you wonder – Is the MassGOP out-of-touch with the electorate?
It is certainly worth a read.
Will Charlie Baker Chris Christie the Mass GOP?
Earlier this year just before the NH primary the popular Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker endorsed Chris Christie as his candidate for president. Despite an active robust campaign Christie went on to be decisively beaten in NH and dropped out of the race two days later.
Some wonder why Chris Christie did so poorly, too crowded a field, not enough money but one of the things that I think cost him was his record.
No not his record as Governor, given the situation in his state he’s actually done pretty well, no I mean his record as head of the NJ GOP
Since Christie is so popular and won re-election so decisively one would naturally expect he brought success for the party with him. After all , if he is the poster boy for the GOP nationally he would be the model to elect party members following his lead all over the state right?
Despite Christie’s 60 percent showing on Tuesday, Republicans didn’t make up any ground in the state Senate.
In an election where he got 60% of the vote and faced token opposition he had absolutely no coattails in his state, and furthermore at the same time herefused to campaign for Ken Cuccinelli who was in a close tough race that he would barely lose to Clinton confidant Terry McAuliffe.
