New Jersey’s Political Future

Posted: Updated:

Ronica is chasing down New Jersey’s most famous politicians, and brought in Jersey’s own Joe Piscopo for a political discussion. Governor Chris Christie and Mayor Cory Booker have received national attention and there are rumors about their national potential in the future.

Ronica sat down with Kyle Kondik of the University of Virginia Center for Politics via Skype. Kondik makes “crystal ball” predictions and placed Christie in his Top Tier of potential winners for the republican primary. He still has some concerns calling him a “loose cannon” and possibly not conservative enough for the party. But if Christie is a republican nominee, Kondik believes he has the qualities to win the presidential election.

We also discussed why Kondik left Cory Booker off the list of potential democratic candidates. Kondik believes that everything will depend on whether or not Hillary Clinton decides to run. And if she does, Kondik says it is unlikely we’ll see Booker in the race, “It’s really impossible to imagine Booker running, while Clinton is also running.”
