Well Christie does have a personal stake - it is his people. So yeah he has to say something.

mind you;

Conservative activist groups such as Americans for Prosperity, the Club for Growth and Heritage Action all pressured congressional Republicans to vote against Hurricane Sandy relief, and while they helped block a bill from coming to a vote on New Year's Eve, the swift and unsubtle backlash brought a wise reassessment.

These all to seem to be GOP supporters who pumped big bucks into Rommys campaign ?

Could it be that even they want the super far right GOP removed ? ?
