UNION – Gov. Chris Christie may be making a point to court the state’s Latino population this election, but the Republican incumbent won’t have big gains within the community at the ballot box Tuesday, says one state assemblywoman.
Democratic Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (D-20) says the governor falls short of being a good leader to represent New Jersey’s Latino population. Her comments come as Christie spent the day on the campaign trail with the nation’s first Latina governor, New Mexico’s GOP Gov. Susana Martinez.
“Chris Christie is not going to be sweeping the Latino community on Election Day,” Quijano said on the eve of the state election.
“Action speaks,” she said. “He doesn’t represent the community.”
The lawmaker says Christie failed Latinos in the state on everything from jobs to education.

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
