It turns out that Chris Christie’s trip to Illinois to stump for GOP Presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney was not fated. In fact, had Mitt Romney stood his ground we could have kept the Governor in his own state doing his job instead of leaving for the umpteenth time this year.
With the Illinois presidential primary expected to be a tight race, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and his backers are expected to spend millions on TV ads and other campaign costs by Tuesday’s election.
If Romney’s Illinois campaign had followed through with challenging the petitions of former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum’s delegates, the scenario could have been much different.
Not that I really want the Governor in the state, but it’d be nice if he spent some time in Trenton doing his job.
