Gov. Christie To Iowa Voters: Vote For Romney Or I’ll Be Back ‘Jersey Style’

N.J. Gov Backs Presidential Hopeful With 'Threat' To Caucus Voters

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie issued a stern warning to Iowa voters at a campaign rally for Mitt Romney Friday.

Romney was in West Des Moines, as were 5 other Republican presidential candidates, as they all hope to set the tone for the upcoming race with a win at the state’s caucus on Tuesday.

Christie was on hand to back the former Massachusetts governor. After giving Romney a glowing endorsement and taking a jab at Obama, the governor of the Garden State turned his attention to the people of Iowa.

“The fight to take back the White House starts on Tuesday night and it starts here in Iowa,” Christie said. “We are counting on you to get out there.”

Never one to beat around the bush, Christie quickly spoke of the repercussions Iowans could expect if Romney didn’t get the win.

“You people disappoint me on Tuesday, and I will be back – Jersey style, people,” Christie told voters. “I will be back.”

Tri-State residents may be used to Christie’s brash tone. What do you think the voters in Iowa thought of his “threat”? Do you think they will listen?

      Dude….You should learn to use periods, commas and paragraphs….😉

  5. Wolf says:

    For Christie to make a statement like he did, referring to the so called “mob” influences of NJ just goes to prove how corrupt politics really are.

  6. Angelica says:

    To Harvey Snowshovler:

    An embarrassment? Do not lump all of NJ into that statement. Just because our Governor is a Neanderthal does not mean that all of NJ think that way!

    As to Romney, the reason he is backing him is because Christie has always been a bootlicker to the rich, his goal is the same as all GOP’ers…make sure the rich remain RICH!

    1. Angelica says:

      Apologies to Harvey, this reply was for:Larry Schwarz

      good for you occupy your own mind

    What a insult to the GOOD people of New Jersey. How could any one who represents a state say that about it’s people. Jersey Style is low class, Jersey Style might fit Christy, but not everyone in New Jersey. The Soparno’s and Christy has done more to hurt Jersey then any thing else except Snookie

  8. Bullett says:

    Hey governor, you don’t have enough muscle to pull one of those so called Jersey thumps, unless of course you bring Tony Soprano and crew as backup.

  9. loveBUG1 says:

    Christie as a man and a political leader are an embarrassment. You stink as New Jersey’s Governor, and you certainly can’t threaten the people who don’t vote your way the same way you threaten people who live in Jersey. Your antics are see through, and your 15 minutes of fame are over fatso. Move along, shut up and wait until you are voted out. You were never welcome in New Jersey.

  11. Gerry Attrick says:

    I received my absentee ballot today with 9 GOP primary candidates on it. After reading each candidate’s stance on the issues I find that none of them represent the opinion and concerns of the working middle class, the elderly or the disabled. Everyone of them is concerned only with continuing corporate welfare and tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans. Christie is simply a loud mouth who exhibits no self control and is a role model for morbidly obese fried food addicts.

  12. les says:

    Glad to see Christie is working hard to dispel and erase negative jersey stereotypes. Maybe he’ll start touring with Snookie. I see jersey property values plummeting.

  13. CHRISTIEISAPOS says:

    HOPEFULLY OR ELSE MEANS HE WILL PUT A BULLET IN HIS HEAD AND LEAVE HIS WIFE AND CHILDREN VERY WELL OFF

  14. Ellen says:

    Sorry, but I don’t like any of the Republicans running for office. These buffoons are even worse the Obama.

  15. ProFromDover says:

    Sounds more like Rex Ryan, and will probably be as effective.

    1. wondering says:

      Remember, he also promised the Jets would win against the Giants, or he would come back Jersey Style. It was great to see him in the Jets luxury suite with the Jets owner as the Jets went down in flames. Based on Christie’s track record of picking losers, I predict that Romney will not win Iowa.

  16. Wyatt says:

    Aw, come on. Don’t be dense; leave off the ‘political gotcha’ stuff…

    Christie’s comment was a little joke and the crowd loved it! Christie is taking care of New Jersey and simply took a day off to be in Iowa today – because he cares not only about New Jersey – he cares about AMERICA., just as Romney does.

    He and Romney have the right priorities and make a great team. The USA is in the tank and sinking as I type (check out the new unemployment numbers and Obama wanting to increase our debt – yet again!).

    We need a successful businessman who specializes in saving enterprises in the White House – MITT ROMNEY.

      You tell em’ Wyatt! Make em smell your ass! Wanna sniff mine? It does have healing properties.

  17. Jenny Craig says:

    Hey Harvey, get a load of fatso there! So much hot air, what’s holding him down?

  18. Angelica says:

    Why is Crispy Creame Christie doing a fly by for Romney? Shouldn’t he be in NJ getting jobs for NJ voters….as he promised? He has spent more time azz kissing Repug wannabe POTUS, than actually doing his job as Governor!

    This is why is he courting Romney, and possibly looking for a VP slot… because he knows he is a one term Governor!

  19. karen says:

    yep, he’s vice presidential material. bet he’s read dan quayle’s book. how many people in nj are reading up on their lieutenant governor?

  20. Maryjane Miller Scheibal says:

    Can someone define JERSEY STYLE??

    1. Tonedeaf Chopin says:

      Yes: fat, arrogant, ignorant, and worthless. Nobody aspires to live in jersey. It’s no more than a toxic land fill with Staten Island as its dark prelude.

      1. Larry Schwarz says:

        New Jersey is am embarrasment to this Country,Where does Christie gat the nerve to try to dent The People of Iowa The Rights guaranteed them under the constitution.The only Republican candidate that I think is responsible is Jon Huntsman,who will probably not get the nomination.Does Christie plan to threaten The Whole USA.As much as I do not approve of our Utah Gov.Gary Herberts track record,he would never go this low..

  21. Raymond Leslie says:

    Is that a promise or a threat.

    1. Joey Popswind says:

      It is in fact a threat. Governor Christie will eat Iowa if the state does not vote the way he wants it to. In reality, he should go on a Karen Carpenter diet.

      1. Harvey Snowshovler says:

        Christie would only be interested in eating Iowa if it were coated in fried dough and chocolate sauce. What a loser, he doesn’t even have the will power to live a healthy life style … The good news for those of us who realize that Romney is poison for the working class … Christie will be an anchor around his feet. Watch them both sink into obscurity …
