Former New Jersey Republican gov: "My party is nuts today"

Thomas Keane, defending Christie from conservative attacks

Yesterday, five New Jersey governors came out to support both Rutgers' president and Chris Christie's handling of the Rutgers scandal.

One such was former New Jersey Republican Gov. Thomas Keane, who went off on this tangent when asked about Christie's national prospects.

"He’s the most popular politician in the country today," Kean said.

"If he comes out of this election with a huge majority in a blue state like New Jersey, they should be coming to him.

Now my party is nuts today so whether they will come to him I don’t know."

Well, "nuts" is in the eye of the beholder, but looking at things from a non-ideological perspective, anyone would have to agree that it was insane for CPAC to snub Christie earlier this year.
