TPM Reader KR sends in this note about Chris Christie's town hall meeting yesterday:
I grew up in Middletown, and return a few times a year to see family and friends. It's true that it's a reasonably (though not overwhelmingly) Christie-friendly town. Middletown has a lot of people who work in finance; it lost more residents than any other town in the state on 9/11, and built a memorial garden next to the train station. It also continues to have a large (if shrinking) working class population. The two communities send their kids to different high schools and are actually, literally separated by the train tracks that run through town.
