RNC Statement on Gov. Christie’s Re-Election Victory
WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement on Governor Christie’s re-election:
“Congratulations to Governor Christie on his impressive re-election victory tonight,” said Chairman Priebus. “During his first term, the governor proved that Republican principles get results—even in a state the pundits like to call a ‘blue state.’ He brought fiscal responsibility to Trenton, and he brought tax relief to families. He put students before special interests, and in everything he stayed true to his word.
“In this race Governor Christie earned significant support among minority voters. That’s a testament to the success of his results-oriented leadership and an inclusive campaign. During this race, the RNC worked alongside the Christie campaign to engage early and often with Hispanic, African American and Asian voters.
“Governor Christie ran an excellent race, but more importantly, he’s been a successful governor. New Jersey residents know he’s a man they can trust, and I’m confident he will continue to deliver results for the Garden State in his second term.”
