Governor Christie in the Badger State

New Jersey’s governor made stop in the Wisconsin Tuesday to help Governor Scott Walker fight against an upcoming recall election.

The fellow Republican governor says Walker is a good example for the rest of the country, after he tackled a major budget deficit and got state spending under control.

Christie called on those attending a $200-a-plate luncheon in Green Bay to do more than just give money. He asked them to go out and actively support Walker, saying their “job won’t be done until all the votes are counted on June 5th, and this good and decent, honest man is spared of the rest of this special interest inflicted nightmare.”

Christie says Walker is a true leader because he pushed through his collective bargaining changes and other reforms, despite the strong opposition he faced from labor groups. Because of that, he says voters need to turn out to support Walker in the June 5th recall.

Christie also joined Walker Tuesday evening at a fundraiser in suburban Milwaukee.
