Essex’s education association plans protest to counter Christie launch

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Not everyone is excited about Chris Christie’s big presidential campaign announcement, Save Jerseyans.

livingstonLeast of all? Thousands of Garden State teachers who are convinced that the Governor is the #1 threat to their retirement savings. Nothing we can say will change their minds.

So Tuesday’s launch at Livingston High School will see a counter-protest (or “pop up rally”) hosted by the Essex County Education Association (here is the Eventbrite page).

“With it looking like the Governor WILL BE announcing his candidacy for the Presidency at Livingston High School,” the invitation explains to prospective participants, “we may have no better chance to let the country know how we feel about him!’ As if we didn’t know already….

The campaign launch is scheduled for 11 am after which time the Governor will get on a plane and head to Sandown, New Hampshire for a town hall meeting.

  1. In addition. Gov. Christie (and many of the other Republican candidates) would not be able to win because they would not be able to carry NJ in the general election if nominated and then how could they win the rest of country. Walter Mondale carried his home state of MN in 1984 at least. In 2012 Romney lost MA & MI where he grew up & they remembered his dad. NJ voted for Obama in 2012. Chris Christie easily won re-election in 2013 for governor. Almost 30% less voters showed up from 2012 to 2013. The math won’t add up for him or the others unless they are more like Ronald Reagan.
