Chris ChristieChris ChristieChristie on 2020 Election: ‘No Matter Where You Stand, It’s Over’ Former New Jersey Senate Speaker Defeated by Political Rookie Democrats Feels New Urgency on Biden’s Agenda Following Virginia Defeat MORE Monday after Christie asked Republicans to put behind Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that the 2020 election had been stolen from him.

Christie, a former Trump ally, made the remarks at the Republican Jewish Coalition conference in Las Vegas, during which he urged the Republican Party to present “a plan for tomorrow, not a complaint about yesterday.”

“The winning campaigns are always the forward-looking, not backward-looking campaigns,” he said, warning that Republicans would pay a political price if they continue to push for the 2020 presidential election.

Christie’s comments drew the ire of Trump, who more than a year after losing his re-election bid has continued to claim that widespread voter fraud and misconduct cost him a second term in the Oval Office.

“Chris Christie, who just delivered a speech at the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) in Las Vegas, was absolutely slaughtered by his statements that Republicans have to put the past behind us, that is, the election fraud of 2020,” he said Trump in a statement. .

“Everyone remembers that Chris left New Jersey with an approval rating of less than 9%, a record low, and they didn’t want to hear this from him!”

Christie’s comments, and Trump’s response, came as Republicans debate how close they should link to the former president heading into the 2022 midterm elections.

While the party and its candidates have for years viewed Trump as their most influential replacement, some Republicans have begun to look at the Virginia governor-elect’s winning campaign.

Unlike many Republican candidates, Youngkin sought to keep the former president at arm’s length throughout his campaign. While he accepted Trump’s endorsement, he never campaigned alongside him in Virginia, choosing to focus on issues like education and taxes rather than tie himself to the former president.

Youngkin ended up bypassing, and in some cases winning, parts of the Commonwealth that had drifted away from the Republican Party in recent years. It made particular breakthroughs among many of the suburban voters who had helped fuel Democratic victories in Virginia during Trump’s term in the White House.

Of course, many Republicans remain deeply loyal to Trump and the political movement he leads. And Christie has spoken critically about Trump before, breaking with the former president over his stolen election claims. His comments in Las Vegas over the weekend drew mixed applause.
