Gov. Christie To Hold Lunchtime Rally For Romney In Illinois

TRENTON, N.J. (AP/CBSNewYork) – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will return to the stump for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Friday.

Christie will host a lunchtime “Romney for President” rally at Elmhurst College in Illinois.

The rally will be two days after the former Massachusetts governor appeared at a fundraising luncheon at the Waldorf-Astoria in Manhattan, and then a $2,500-a-ticket fundraiser at the Stamford Marriott Hotel and Spa.

In New York on Wednesday, several hundred Occupy Wall Street protesters greeted Romney harshly, walking around the Waldorf-Astoria behind a black urn they said represented “job cremation.”

They assert that the Republican presidential hopeful made a fortune as a consultant cutting jobs at struggling companies.

The popular GOP governor endorsed Romney after deciding not to enter the presidential race himself. Christie is consistently rumored to be on Romney’s short list for vice president.

    PREDICTING A NATIONWIDE FAMINE IN AMERICA. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ECONOMICS OR RATIONING, BUT IT’S BECAUSE FAT BOY CHRISTIE HAS EATEN OUR ENTIRE NATIONAL FOOD SUPPLY.

  2. Christie: the Governor that ate NJ says:

    The guests better get there before Christie does…because if he gets there first, there won’t be any food left for anybody else!

    Btw, why isn’t he in NJ doing his job? This isn’t why he was elected. If he want to travel with Romney, let Romney foot the bill and not the NJ taxpayers!

  3. Christie GOES WILD AND PIGS OUT YEAH BABE! says:
