New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will have a tougher time getting the Republican nomination for president than winning the general election in 2016, political consultant and strategist Roger Stone said Wednesday.

Stone, author of the new book  “The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ,” told “The Steve Malzberg Show” that Christie’s re-election Tuesday was "big."

"It will be a tougher term for him to be nominated than be elected," Stone said Wednesday in the interview on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.




"It is interesting to me, though, in all of the polling, he's the only Republican who runs within hailing distance of Hillary Clinton; he's right on Hillary Clinton's tail."

On another big winner Tuesday — liberal Democrat Bill de Blasio as New York City mayor — Stone speculated that "things have been good in New York for so long . . .  people have forgotten" the days of high crime rates, failing schools, and high unemployment.

"And therefore, when you tell them you're going to be going backwards, they have no frame of reference," he said, repeating the warning of de Blasio’s Republican rival, Joe Lhota. "They don't know what backwards is."

Stone, speaking of his new book, said he "absolutely" believes Johnson "had unique motive, means, and opportunity to kill" President John F. Kennedy.

"I believe that he was the linchpin of a plot that included others, such as the Central Intelligence Agency," organized crime, and Texas oil interests, Stone said. "A Latin axiom goes . . . ‘If you want to know who committed the crime, look at who derives the greatest benefit.' Johnson is the one."

Stone said his book also reveals that Johnson is tied "to at least eight murders on the way up."

"Johnson was a killer, and murder was in his repertoire," Stone alleged, adding that in the Kennedy shooting, "there probably [were] at least two shooters . . . may have been three."
