Chris Christie taking his troubles on national tour

Governor Chris Christie (R,NJ) is taking his troubles and battered image on a national tour in hopes of boosting his ratings in the polls and increasing his chances for success in the long anticipated Presidential campaign. Christie's ratings, which are tanking in his home state, are more promising on the national scale, according to Reuters, Feb. 4, 2014.

Christie will be stopping at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and speaking in his capacity as the chairperson of the Republican Governors Association (RGA). Last year Christie was snubbed at the CPAC, primarily because of his nice words for President Obama in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, which severely affected Christie's home state of New Jersey.

Although CPAC officials could not be contacted for their rationale for inviting Christie to its meeting, it is commonly believed that nationwide Republicans are distancing themselves from Christie while at the same time wanting to remain loosely affiliated with him in case he manages to unravel himself from his current political entanglements.

Other notable Republicans scheduled to speak at the CPAC conference are Rick Santorum, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, and Ted Cruz, among others. The meeting will be held in San Diego this year during the first week of March.
