Politico has a relatively new piece on Governor Christie that describes his early years in NJ politics. For most Daily Kos readers the article will not be news but there are a couple of interesting facts I felt were worthy of mention.

1. I had forgotten that he was dumped off the ballot in his first attempt at elected office in a lawsuit over the necessary signatures of registered voters in the district. Not only did he get signatures from people outside the district but many were not even Republicans.

2. The slate he and a friend challenged on his third race contains a name that may well come back to haunt him. Michael Patrick Carroll a staunch conservative Republican is now one of the four Republicans on the Bridgegate committee.  (Paybacks are hell)

3. Christie ran that race as a "pro-choice" candidate.  

4. Politico ran this article.

For the first time I am beginning to believe that his days of thinking he might be POTUS might be finished. When Politico has an article that describes you as a "pro-choice", pro-gun control and a bully you are in trouble in a Republican primary.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
