    A United Flight bound for Boston was delayed nearly four hours after a passenger reportedly threatened New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was on the plane. United Airlines Flight 1108 was supposed to take off from San Francisco at 8:32 a.m. and everyone was on the plane, preparing for takeoff. The plane was on the runway when the pilot announced they were returning to the gate for “operational difficulties." A FOX25 employee's family member was aboard the plane and told FOX25 that the plane returned to the gate and they kept everyone on the plane for about 45 minutes. Then...

    Farliegh Dickinson ^ | 11/18/15 | Krista Jenkins
    Support for Governor Chris Christie’s presidential bid has dropped in half among New Jersey Republicans over the last four months. Back in June, 18 percent of registered Republicans said they supported him for his party’s presidential nomination. Today that number is down to nine percent, according to the most recent statewide survey of registered voters in New Jersey from Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind. The big vote getter is business magnate and political neophyte, Donald Trump, who attracts the support of 31 percent of Republicans, with Florida Senator Marco Rubio surging to second with the support of 18 percent. Rounding out...

    National Review ^ | November 11, 2015 | Rich Lowry
    Ted Cruz had a terrific night. He had a stand-out answer on immigration and wages, and made his own fortune by getting into an argument with John Kasich on bank bailouts, enunciating the anti-bailout position forcefully and repeatedly (although I don't really believe he wouldn't bail out a major financial institution in the midst of a financial panic if he were president). He was pointed, eloquent, and, of course, very conservative. Marco Rubio was very good, as well. But I thought Rubio was slightly better than Cruz last time, and that Cruz was slightly better this time. Rubio just felt...

Chris Christie accused CNBC's Republican presidential debate moderators of showing "bias" that he termed "despicable" but pooh-poohed the Republican National Committee's move to suspend plans for a Feb. 26 GOP presidential primary debate with NBC as a bit much. "If you're running for president of the United States and you can't handle yourself against three CNBC moderators without crying foul and calling for intervention then you're not going to do very well against Vladimir Putin, either," Christie said.

For the past week, Jeb Bush’s campaign advisers have been using a new data point to convince nervous donors that he’s still the candidate to beat: Bush’s lead in the political prediction markets.

    Debating Chris Christie is a formidable task because he's quick-witted, sharp-tongued and slightly intimidating. Those qualities helped him get the best of Rand Paul in the first Republican presidential debate. But Christie's best weapon is one that may catch up with him: He never lets the truth get in his way. Earlier this year, Paul led a successful effort to end the National Security Agency's mass collection of Americans' telephone records. During the debate, Christie was asked whether he stands by his assertion that Paul should be blamed if the United States suffers another terrorist attack. He does, of course:...

The court finds the general interest of the public to have a breakdown pales in comparison, said Jacobson during a hearing in Mercer County Superior Court....

    Donald Trump vows to "make America great again." His rivals on the Republican ticket Jeb Bush and Chris Christie have gone even further and claim they can grow the U.S. economy by 4% a year. Expect that figure to pop up again at the first Republican debate on Thursday. On the face of it, 4% might not seem that outlandish. But it's actually a huge number. The country would need a turbocharge to rev up to that level. To find a period when the U.S. routinely grew at that pace you have to as far back as the 1950s and...

    Listening to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie talk about his sex life isnt exactly anything anyone wants to hear right now. Unfortunately, potential voters in a New Hampshire restaurant had to hear all about it on Tuesday morning. Christie is just one of the many GOP candidates who have made stops in the New England conservative state. While discussing his Catholicism and whether or not religion had a place in politics, the governor addressed the often touchy subject of contraception: Im a Catholic, but Ive used birth control, and not just the rhythm method, okay?

    Hi, this is New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. I saw a video today from Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that is truly disturbing. In trying to address the current controversy on whether there should be federal funding for Planned Parenthood Clinics, Secretary Clinton says that Republicans are against funding for womens healthcare. Well nothing could be further from the truth and let me use my state, New Jersey, as an example. We generously fund federally qualified health clinics throughout New Jersey, which provides excellent care for women and men in our state who need it. Everything from cancer screenings...

    Jeb Bush stumbled through a familiar question about his brother and father, struggling for the right words as he cracked a joke about duking it out with anyone who questioned the legacy of his aging dad. Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey awkwardly said aloud what many have been wondering about his candidacy: Am I washed up? And Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina reached back to the 1990s to attack Hillary Rodham Clintons credibility by dredging up her husbands dishonesty about a sexual affair. Mischievously promising to translate Clinton-speak for the audience, Mr. Graham explained, When Bill says, I...

    OCEANPORT It was one long happy celebration at Monmouth Park for the great American Pharoah's latest victory. At least, that is, until Gov. Chris Christie stepped into the Winner's Circle to present the trophy. And then, the record crowd of 60,983 booed. Long. Loud. Sustained.

    ... Trump may have surged ahead of the 2016 Republican candidates, but if he ever became the GOP nominee, the nation would vote Democrat. He earned 20 percent favorability among the Republicans in a new poll [URL at link] - the largest favorability in the party that the Quinnipiac University poll has ever seen. Following behind him are Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at 13 percent and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush with 10 percent. ... Yet Trump's own party put him at the top of the "no way" list. Thirty percent of Republicans respondents said they would "definitely not support"...

    For years, Republican candidates have been assured by their political consultants that amnesty is a runaway hit with the public. Then they always come in for a zinger of a surprise when the American people are finally able to express themselves on the subject. (Sometimes it seems as if political consultants are in the game only to make money.) Washington has tried to sneak through three amnesties in the last decade -- in 2006, 2007 and 2013. Each time, amnesty had the full support of the media, the White House, leaders of both political parties, big campaign donors and lobbyists....

    Gov. Chris Christie has finally taken the gloves off when it comes to Republican presidential rival Donald Trump, attacking the GOP frontrunner's quick-fix solutions on immigration as something that "hurts the credibility of the Presidency" and saying that Trump's views on entitlement reform ignore the facts. In announcing his candidacy for president last month, Trump said he would "build a great wall" along the entire U.S.-Mexico border to stem illegal immigration, boasting that "nobody builds walls better than me, believe me." -snip- Speaking with CNBC in a Keene, N.H., diner on Tuesday, Christie derided Trump's "great line" about having the...
