Chris Christie's rift with conservatives at large (insert joke here) just got worse. The New Jersey Governor has failed to be invited to next month's Conservative Political Action Conference in DC, reports Politico
's Maggie Haberman.
Unlike the other
2016 presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, Chris Christie won't be among the speakers at CPAC due to his cozying up to President Obama just before the election and generally making folks on the right unsure about his conservative credentials. Or at least that's the working theory. But apart from his recent behavior, claims Haberman, Christie's more or less worthy of attending the annual conference of loyal Republicans.
"Christie is pro-life and has generally met a social issues litmus test for Republicans," she writes.
