  1. Christie has never really been a viable candidate. He is from the Northeast, is Italian Descent, is Catholic, and is too moderate for the ultra conservatives in the GOP who control candidates. Bridgegate hasn’t helped but it is not a major factor. Jeb Bush may be a favorite in Florida, but he, too , is too moderate for the extremist. If the GOP puts up an ultra-conservative, they will lose again.
