Christie said Youngkin and Jack Ciattarelli of New Jersey, who nearly won its governorship met the voters where they were at the gas pump, the grocery store, and their children’s schools:
‘We can no longer talk about the past and the past elections — no matter where you stand on that issue, no matter where you stand, it is over. Every minute that we spend talking about 2020 — while we’re wasting time doing that, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are laying ruin to this country. We better focus on that and take our eyes off the rearview mirror and start looking through the windshield again.’
Christie told CNN that Trump can greatly improve Republican candidates’ chances in the midterm 2022 elections, but only if he will “begin talking about the future and tell the truth about the election and move on:”
‘People want us to be direct with them. They want someone to fight for them. But they want them to fight in a way that doesn’t hurt their ears. We have to speak to their dreams, their hopes, their aspirations for the future. If we don’t do that, then we won’t once again win back the votes that we began to win back in Virginia and New Jersey last Tuesday night.’
Former Governor Nikki Haley (R-SC) and Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) said they would bow out should Trump run, but not Christie:
‘Absolutely not. My decision will never be based on anybody else’s candidacy. It will be based on whether I believe I have the talent, the skill and the ability to be able to win. And anybody who says that they’ll step aside for anybody else, I’d say to you, doesn’t belong being president. If you don’t believe in yourself enough to stand up to anyone, then you can’t possibly stand up for everyone.’
“Just tell the truth” Christie advised Trump, as The Newsweek Magazine reported, which of course is impossible.
