Obama Campaign Asks NJ Residents to 'Tell the Truth' About Christie
The New Jersey arm of the president's campaign has set up a website asking residents for feedback on Gov. Chris Christie.
An email circulated to New Jersey supporters of President Barack Obama is asking residents to "tell the truth" about Gov. Chris Christie, in anticipation of presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's possible VP nod to the New Jersey governor.
The email, sent Wednesday morning by Jackie Cornell-Bechelli, New Jersey State Director of Obama for America, points its recipients to a website, where supporters can fill out a form detailing "what you think people need to know about Chris Christie."
Christie has repeatedly waved off rumors that he would accept a vice-presidential nomination from Romney.
On July 16 in Manasquan, Christie said he does not expect to be Romney's pick for vice president.
"Hopefully (Romney) picks a smart, well-qualified person who's ready to be president and ready to support him as president," Christie said in Manasquan. "Who that's going to be? I don't know. I assume we're going to hear relatively soon what his decision is."
The Obama-Biden website is asking New Jersey resident to "share the facts" about Christie with the rest of America, who may not know the governor as well.
With the Republican National Convention two weeks away, Romney has kept the buzz about his potential vice president alive. According to NJ.com, there is also speculation Romney will announce Christie as the keynote speaker of this year's RNC.
