Christie Rips RNC Rules on Delegate Selection

New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie isn’t too happy about the delegate allocation rules created by the Republican National Committee (RNC).

Christie, who appears to be presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s surrogate-in-chief, objects specifically to the requirement for a proportional delegate allocation in primaries prior to April 1, Politico reports.

The rules lessen the chance that the GOP will be able to defeat President Barack Obama in November, Christie told “Fox & Friends” Thursday.

"This was the dumbest idea anybody ever had. We voted against it at the RNC," he said. "The reason we did was you're running against an incumbent president who will not have a primary. So your idea is make ours longer so we can beat each other up even longer."

Asked what his own role might be in a brokered convention, Christie said, "don't worry about it. I'm behind Mitt Romney 100 percent."

Meanwhile, Christie slammed Rick Santorum’s debate performance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program.

“I think Senator Santorum had an awful night,” he said.

“And I think he gave an example last night of why we don’t need another legislator in the White House. He’s talking about, well, ‘I’m a team player, it’s against my principles, but I voted for it.’ This is why you don’t want somebody who has been inside the Beltway that long.”
