TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Gov. Chris Christie was re-elected with ease Tuesday, demonstrating the kind of broad, bipartisan appeal that will serve as his opening argument should he seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.
Christie dominated Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono on Tuesday in an election that was never in doubt. With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Christie had 60 percent of the vote to Buono’s 38 percent, according to unofficial returns.
However, the buzz Wednesday was not about Christie’s big win in New Jersey, but about his political future.
