New Jersey Rep. Rush Holt is perplexed by the Conservative Political Action Conference’s decision not to invite Gov. Chris Christie to speak at its annual get-together next month.

“I would think they would love to hear him,’’ Holt told Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.’’

Story continues below.



“I was surprised at that. I would think CPAC attendees would love to her Gov. Christie.’’
There has been speculation that Christie was snubbed because more and more Republicans see him as not conservative enough and veering too closely to Democrats.

Some GOP lawmakers are still stunned that Christie embraced and praised President Barack Obama when he visited the Garden State in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
But Holt said that Christie is still perceived as a conservative as far as he’s concerned.

“Certainly in many ways and certainly from the perspective of a lot of us in New Jersey he is,’’ Holt said.

Christie’s approval rating in New Jersey remains at 73 percent.

When asked by Malzberg if he thought the CPAC had made a big mistake by not inviting Christie, Holt replied: “Oh, I wouldn’t presume to tell them how to do their business.’’
