New Hampshire Union Leader endorses Christie

By The Staff | The Save Jersey Blog

christie new hampshireIt hasn’t yet impacted his polling position, Save Jerseyans, but Governor Chris Christie‘s tireless campaigning in New Hampshire has earned him the endorsement of the Granite State’s most influential newspaper.

“Gov. Christie is right for these dangerous times,” the New Hampshire Union Leader’s publisher, Joseph McQuaid, opined in the editorial. “He has prosecuted terrorists and dealt admirably with major disasters. But the one reason he may be best-suited to lead during these times is because he tells it like it is and isn’t shy about it.”

Newspaper endorsements nevertheless don’t mean what they used to back in the day, and even before its circulation dropped considerably like most papers, the Union Leader’s record of picking winners in contested primaries is mixed. The powerful paper has backed Pete du Pont in 1988, Patrick Buchanan in both 1992 and 1996 Steve Forbes in 2000 and Newt Gingrich in 2012. None of those candidate went on to win in New Hampshire except for Buchanan in ’96, and none of these candidates, including Buchanan, won the nomination.

  1. George Soros is behind BLM. CC is running as “the Law and Order Candidate” and needs to prove he can handle anything! “Sandy” and the Prosecutors job was fair but not good enough. CC needs a Incident/Major problem to get into the WH, Can Soros help him?Trump is just that a Trump card to keep everyone busy until Trump screws up to much! CC has been planning for the WH since his lawyer days and has thought of every possibility!

  2. This is strange as he battles successfully against overblown tax NJ state destroying Union every day in Jersey for years. Nj is by far the most taxed state and he’s been reducing it cutting the debt that the Demoncraps make worse and worse daily.
