Another Reason Chris Christie Was Never Going To Be V.P. Choice
The bombastic nature of Chris Christie was always problematic for the wishes of his presidential hopes. While he would have been a good counselor in the role of vice-president the baggage he brings with him over Bridge-Gate proved more than Donald Trump wanted to saddle himself. The shading dealings and background of the governor made Mitt Romney look but reject his name as a nominee in 2012.
Today one of Christie’s closest confidants and the former chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey pleaded guilty to a felony count. David Samson, who resigned from his Port Authority post amid fallout from the tawdry political affair had been under investigation for more than two years involving a flight unofficially dubbed the “Chairman’s Flight” that he allegedly requested United Airlines to reinstate from Newark to Columbia, S.C. Interestingly, the route was convenient to his vacation home.
Both Romney and Trump had good reason to dodge away from Christie.
