At a breakfast meeting with Republican county chairs this morning, Gov. Chris Christie told GOP leaders to not get overly confident about the 2013 general election.
State Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) launched her campaign for governor this past weekend, and NJTV star Michael Aron in a column subsequently shot down the much buzzed comparisons of Buono to failed Democratic candidate Peter Shapiro, walloped in his 1985 challenge of then-Gov. Tom Kean, Sr.
In brief remarks to the chairs this morning, Christie also told Republicans to stop with the Tom Kean talk.
