ABERDEEN -- Shortly before 9:40 p.m., Republican Kim Guadagno appeared on stage to concede the New Jersey governor's race to Democrat Phil Murphy, saying she made "the best possible case" to voters in her efforts to succeed Gov. Chris Christie. "We left no stone unturned," Guadagno, Christie's lieutenant governor, said, quickly arresting the lusty boos that sprang up at the mention of Murphy's name.

NJ is LOST!. As usual....
Beyond stupid to run a woman.
Been behind enemy lines in this cesspool my entire life. Murphy can kiss my ass.
Christie had literally burned his bridges, along with all his people. Should have run a complete outsider.
Thank Christie for it.
He could have been a great governor. But his ego and his stupid mouth got in the way.
If Menendez is forced out before Murphy takes office, will Krispy Kreme appoint Guadagno?
Christie was a great governor for 3-4 years. He’s been mailing it in since he was re-elected in 2013. I’ve always believed that he saw this job as a stepping-stone to a U.S. Attorney General nomination in 2012 or 2016.
His Bronc0 hugging couldn’t have helped...
Murphy: Corslime Deux, Egregious Bugaboo.
Christie was pretty good at one time for issuing the straight dope on government.
“...Christie was a great governor for 3-4 years....”
I’ll respectfully disagree. For gun owners in NJ, he COULD have been a great governor if he’d have even made an ATTEMPT to roll back some of the egregious infringements on the Citizens 2nd Amendment right. He did nothing to help the honest citizens who want to be able to carry for self-defense, to just BUY a firearm without a damned permission slip, etc.
I initially thought he’d be a good win for NJ, but that turned out not to be the case. Major disappointment, and just another RINO. And the Bridgegate thing gave the Dems tons of ammo to shove up his rear. Bad optics, for sure.
Agree with you on the stepping-stone thing.
He turned out to be a marshmallow. Call him Fluffy.
And one with an icky name like "Guadagno" yet.....sheesh....!
Christie was shackled with a Democrat-contrallied legislature (both houses) for his entire tenure in office. He wasn’t perfect, but he was the best you were ever going to get here.
After Christie, who the Hell wanted another Republican?? Christie was sold as the Republican savior of New Jersey and he turned out to be a turd. People were willing to try another Democrat after his clown act.
His “tough guy” act was just an act after all.
Are you from New Jersey? Tell us what he did wrong.
