Chris Christie gives last major speech as NJ governor

Trump considered running as Christie's vice president, insider book reveals

Christie's job approval rating in New Jersey was just 15 percent last summer, as he drew outrage for sunbathing on a publicly-funded beach while the state government was in a budget shutdown.

Despite Christie's portrayal, New Jersey's recovery has been a mixture of successes and setbacks, as the state's unemployment rate, at just over 5 percent, is much improved compared to early 2010, but also higher than it was at this time past year, and also above the overall national jobless average.

"That's why those things don't bother me in the end", Christie told NJ.com.

Chris Christie was once thought of as a potential Republican candidate for president, but quickly fell out of favor after the infamous "Bridgegate" scandal.

Christie did not speak about his failed run for president in 2016, nor the Bridgegate scandal, in which Bill Baroni, a former deputy director at the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey, and Bridget Anne Kelly, who was Christie's deputy chief of staff, were convicted in connection with the September 2013 lane closures at the approach to the George Washington Bridge. "Um.can he??? Seriously?? I have me doubts", another tweet wrote. "But that's what it did".

Warriors again without Curry versus Bucks

Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, described Mr. Christie's tenure as a "pretty interesting ride", saying he entered office in 2010 as somewhat of an unknown commodity. However, when 2015 rolled around, the governor made a decision to launch a bid for president anyway.

"Our next governor, no matter how long he serves, will not have to reauthorize the TTF", Christie said. His 2016 campaign ended with a poor showing in New Hampshire.

Chris Christie says the Bridgegate scandal that rocked his administration affected him more severely than losing his bid to be the 2016 Republican nominee for president. "The issues you're talking about are exciting".

In a state with a history of unpopular governors upon leaving office, Christie will end his second term as the most disapproved and disliked since Eagleton began surveying the public nearly five decades ago. He's so direct, he's so blunt.

The prepared text of his remarks didn't show him invoking the name of his friend, President Donald Trump. But we love your husband.

Christie leaves office Tuesday, January 16 after eight years as governor.

"Are there things that I would have done differently?"

"Ivanka told her father that Christie's appointment as chief of staff or to any other high position would be extremely hard for her and her family, and it would be best that Christie be removed from the Trump orbit altogether", the book says. I don't have any major regrets.

Senate President Sweeney says the state is on a path to improving the pension system solvency and he wants to give Governor-elect Phil Murphy the chance to discuss what else can be done.
