Buried toward the end of the expansive NY Times story today about the Governor’s lavish travel demands, is this nugget regarding Chris Christie and Ann Romney during the 2012 Presidential campaign:
As he has traveled more widely, particularly during the last year, when he led the Republican Governors Association, Mr. Christie’s first-class tastes have become well known. He made it clear when he campaigned for Mr. Romney in 2012 that he would do out-of-state events only if he was given a private plane, even during the primary, when the candidate’s wife was still flying commercial to save money. The Romney campaign came to understand that he preferred a Cessna Citation X, which, its manufacturer boasts, has exotic wood interiors and a Rolls-Royce engine.
Man of the people, right? That should all play great in Iowa.
