New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who is still dealing with massive power outages and damage across his state in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, declined an invitation to appear with Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday night, a Romney campaign insider tells the Huffington Post:
The Romney rally was held at a farm in Morrisville, Pa., not more than 20 minutes from Trenton, the New Jersey capital. The physical proximity of the event to New Jersey only added to questions in the Romney campaign about why Christie chose not to come.
“You can’t tell me he couldn’t have gone over there for a night rally,” a Romney campaign source told HuffPost.
