Christie Responds To Allegations From The West

Posted: Updated:
Parsippany, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Governor Christie continues making stops on his “No Pain, No Gain summer conversation tour” to discuss the need for pension reform, and at his latest stop in Parsippany, New Jersey, the governor talked about some of the allegations that are being thrown his way coming from the west.

Former Republican candidate for Colorado governor Tom Tancredo, who recently withdrew his candidacy, has accused the Republican Governor’s Association, of which Chris Christie is the Chair, of funneling money to his opponent into attack ads against him.

To be clear, this was a Republican primary race for governor of Colorado, something that the Republican Governor’s Association wouldn’t likely get involved in. Governor Christie called these allegations ridiculous.

“Anybody who loses an election is always unhappy and looking for someone else to blame and what I found most of the time, especially when I’ve lost, is it’s my fault when I lose and so candidates that lose elections should not be looking to blame other people they should just take their responsibility on for themselves,” he said.

Tancredo took the time to respond to Governor Christie’s comments.

“Certainly our relationship has been anything but smooth and mostly because of my position on immigration. He may have been pushed to do this by other governors who feel that I am too closely associated maybe with Tea Party groups who are great people and I love them and they were supporting me, some of them, not all. But it’s primarily my stance on immigration that infuriates some of the Republican establishment,” he said.

Tancredo says that in the past Christie hasn’t taken his losses too well either, so it’s interesting to him his choice words of advice for other candidates who don’t come out on top.
