New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, once a star in the Republican Party with a scarcely 80% capitulation rating, will leave bureau on Tuesday as the slightest renouned administrator in his state’s history.
Christie began his seven-year reign in bureau as a big-tent Republican, noticed by many opposite the aisle as a tough straight-talker. Following the drop of Hurricane Sandy in 2012, his capitulation rating surged into the high 70s and he won reelection by a landslide in 2013. Once gallant to separate from party orthodoxy, Christie has in new years tacked right, using for boss on a regressive height and endorsing a boss widely despised among New Jerseyans.
After several scandals, including the rapist philosophy of two of his top aides, and a unsuccessful 2016 presidential bid, Christie has just a 14% capitulation rating and is widely disliked in his own state and party.
