Chris Christie Easily Secures Re-Election in New Jersey

Nearly as soon as the polls closed, Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was projected as the winner. Due to his commanding lead in exit polls, Christie’s victory isn’t a surprise.

Christie’s dominating victory in a blue state is expected to be a major case to national Republicans ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Christie has the support of Republicans, Democrats, and independents and is currently a GOP favorite for the presidential election.

His re-election was not without controversy, however, as Christie received major criticism for his handling of the special election for the late Frank Lautenberg’s vacant Senate seat. The special election had a record low voter turnout and cost the state $24 million, but had the potential to be a high profile race if it was held in November, which would have threatened Christie’s incumbency.
