Chris Christie defeated incumbent Jon Corzine in the New Jersey GOP election last night. Christie won by a 49% to 44% margin of victory. This nomination marks an important defeat for the Obama presidency because of the election of a republican candidate.
In a press conference this morning, Christie stated that, "we're on the job, we're getting ready...I'm ready to work. Failure is not part of my vocabulary". These compelling words offer hope to a state that has been ravaged by the 2008 recession.
