New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) isn't losing sleep over not being invited to the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference. "That's their prerogative," Christie told the Wall Street Journal Wednesday. "They get to decide."
Christie added, "I wish them the best."
Despite his high approval rating, event organizers snubbed the New Jersey governor over his rhetoric toward House Republicans in the wake of superstorm Sandy. "He made it very hard for Republicans in the Congress at a time when we were trying to deal with fiscal restraint," American Conservative Union chair Al Cardenas told the Journal earlier. The American Conservative Union organizes the conference.
The conference, commonly referred to as CPAC, is an annual gathering of prominent conservatives. This year, Sarah Palin, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R ), among others, are scheduled to speak.
