New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is stumping in Iowa for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, but his punch lines extend beyond Romney’s Republican rivals in the Hawkeye State’s caucuses Tuesday.
“Let’s be real clear: President Barack Obama came out to Iowa three years ago and he talked to you about hope and change,” Christie said during an appearance with Romney in West Des Moines this morning. “Well let me tell you after three years of Obama, we are hopeless and changeless and we need Mitt Romney to bring us back, to bring America back.”
Christie persisted in talking, despite a handful of people in the crowd chanting, “We are the 99 percent” until they were escorted away, according to nj.com
The New Jersey attack dog left the West Des Moines crowd with a playful jab: “If you don’t do what you’re supposed to do for Mitt Romney on Tuesday, I will be back, Jersey-style, people. I will be back.”
Christie, who considered running for the GOP nomination for a while before finally opting not to and landing in Romney's camp instead, also was scheduled to lobby voters in Cedar Rapids and Dubuque today.
