Christie Doesn’t ‘Give A Darn’ About Romney Campaign

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Sunday poked fun of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign while responding to a question about the the vice presidential vetting process described in the new book ‘Double Down.’

“First off, political advice from people who ran the Romney campaign is probably something nobody should really give a darn about,” Christie said on ABC’s “This Week.” 

Christie said he didn’t the book seriously, especially since Romney spoke out and called Christie “impressive.”

“But listen to Governor Romney, and what Governor Romney said when he spoke last week was that none of this caused him any pause at all, and so I’ll take Mitt Romney’s interpretation of all this, rather than some, you know, paid political consultant who was, you know, trying to make himself famous obviously in the book,” Christie said.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
