CNN’s Michael Smerconish believes that Governor Chris Christie could benefit from Mitt Romney’s exit.
Theoretically, it could be a good situation for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, if he didn’t have so many troubles at home.
Those include investigations into purposely causing a multi-day traffic jam in the town of a mayor he didn’t like, misuse of Hurricane Sandy relief aid, and improper use of bondholders’ funds by the Port Authority.
Former Massachusetts governor and two-time presidential candidate Mitt Romney pulled back from a third run for president after determining that he could get out while he’s ahead, according to Yahoo News.
“After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the party the opportunity to become our next nominee,” Romney said in a statement first published on radio host Hugh Hewitt’s website.
“Two weeks ago it would have looked like he got pushed out,” a campaign adviser from the 2012 effort said. Now, Romney left the stage with the most recent opinion polls showing him leading the huge field of potential Republican candidates for president.
