Chris Christie Wants A Comeback?


New Jersey governor Chris Christie is feeling good again. He remains one of the country's most unpopular executives. He has had a dismal year in which two allies were sentenced to prison, the state’s credit rating continued to drop, and his White House dreams were conspicuously dashed by Donald Trump. Christie is entering into the last eight months in office. He often seems happier and more focused than at any point since the Bridgegate scandal broke, several people close to him say. He is again taking on an ambitious agenda in New Jersey, trying to buttress and shape his once-enviable legacy. He is enjoying significant influence in Trump's world. Christie is spearheading a new national anti-addiction effort, talking to the president several times per week, and recently spending much of two days in the Oval Office advising Trump. The governor also rediscovered his fighting spirit back home. In recent weeks, the governor has made a show of taking on New Jersey’s biggest insurer, attacking its “multi-million dollar mouthpieces, out there lying,” and has seemed to enjoy tussling with his old adversaries in the Trenton press corps. Christie has also reignited his feud with the state’s labor unions, by promising to enact new pension reforms and restructure the state’s school-funding system. Whether he wants to make a bunch of money in the private sector or he is angling for a job inside the administration or he wants some for of redemption just for himself, Chris Christie is certainly mounting a comeback.
