|"Why would any Republican in his right mind|
want to support Chris Christie?"
~ Seth Grossman
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) could find himself with a Tea Party challenger in his bid for a second term this year.
Former Atlantic County Freeholder Seth Grossman (R-Atlantic City) told PolitickerNJ.com that he is considering a challenge to the popular one-term governor in the June Republican primary. A Tea Party leader and radio show host from South Jersey who hasn't run for elected office in over two decades, Grossman indicated he might be willing to take on the governor, who has been playing up his alliance with President Barack Obama on Hurricane Sandy relief in recent months.
Grossman is allied with former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan (R), whom Christie defeated by roughly 40,000 votes in the 2009 Republican gubernatorial primary. Lonegan now heads the New Jersey chapter of Americans for Prosperity, the Koch brothers-backed group. Grossman currently hosts a conservative talk radio show in South Jersey and founded Liberty and Prosperity 1776, Inc., which he says is "teaching Americans how to think and act like Americans again."Read the whole story HERE.
