National support for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) has completely crumbled from its previous lofty heights. Before the bridge scandal he was both the clear leader in the Republican primary and more importantly the only Republicans that polled as having a real chance of beating Hillary Clinton.

Friday was a tough day for Governor Chris Christie as one of his senior appointees to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, David Wildstein, claimed Christie had lied at his notorious two hour press conference and that he had the evidence to prove it. Wildstein’s claim led the news – local and national – going into the Super Bowl which was played in New Jersey this year.
And now another shoe has dropped in the Bridgegate scandal as Christina Renna, who was mentioned in the emails and is under subpoena, has resigned as Governor Christie’s director of intergovernmental affairs.

But things aren’t working out for Christie quite the way he hoped.

Since the bridge scandal I can’t see how Gov. Chris Christie makes a case to top donors, campaign workers, politicians, and activists about why they should get behind him early. Their support is critical for building an effective campaign team.

There are at least three separate scandals – and subsequent proceedings – in the State of New Jersey related to the conduct of Governor Chris Christie. And what is the governor doing? Preparing to go on a nation-wide tour as head of the Republican Governors Association to raise money for the party.
