TIME Puts Christie On Its Cover: ‘The Elephant In The Room’ (PHOTO)

Following his landslide re-election victory this week, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) will grace the cover of TIME once again.

Under the headline “The Elephant In The Room,” TIME’s coverage of Christie in this week’s issue includes a story by Joe Scarborough, the MSNBC pundit who’s made no secret of his admiration for the governor. 

TIME gave Christie the cover treatment earlier this year too, dubbing him “The Boss” in a January issue. Christie later said that particular cover was “not kind.”
