Christie On Boehner Resignation

Chris Christie was gentle in his direct comments on House Speaker John Boehner’s resignation.  Although he was critical of Congressional leadership more broadly in earlier comments, Christie politely said that “the Speaker obviously made a very personal decision” and “that it’s hard to tell” when I asked if in his view the House, and the country, would be better off without Boehner as Speaker.

We spoke after a Christie town hall in Nashua, New Hampshire.
