Governor Chris Christie has raised more than $2 million for his reelection bid so far. Political analysts say he may not be toeing the party line this week, but it’s not hurting his fundraising.
The report from his campaign office comes after Christie blasted House Republicans for putting off a $60 billion Sandy relief package.
Rider University political scientist Ben Dworkin says the timing is no coincidence and has a big message attached.
“Look at this momentum. Look at how inevitable my election is going to be.”
Dworkin doubts Christie’s harsh words for fellow Republicans will have any impact on his campaign purse down the line… and could even work in his favor. He predicts Christie will outspend any Democratic challenger by millions, but his own victory over Jon Corzine shows nothing is a given.
“As we saw in 2009, just because you’re outspent, doesn’t mean you’re going to lose.”
