MORRISTOWN, NJ – Former Governor Chris Christie will not be speaking at the Republican National Convention. This comes after Christie went to the mainstream media news networks and criticized the President’s demeanor, even saying “Trump can’t win” the 2020 election.
Christie had big ambitions after his term as governor of New Jersey was over. He was the keynote speaker at the 2012 RNC convention but has since fallen from grace. He lost a bid to be the RNC Chairman after Trump chose Ronna McDaniel instead. Now, it turns out Christie will not be speaking at the RNC Convention, instead, he will be a paid commentator during the convention for ABC News.
The RNC earlier this year snubbed several other New Jersey Republicans. Ocean County GOP Chairman Frank Holman was passed over as an RNC delegate. Instead, the wife of former Ocean County GOP Chairman George Gilmore got the spot usually reserved for the Ocean County chairman.
The RNC recently condemned Jackson Township GOP President Todd Porter and Jackson GOP Chairwoman Clara Glory after the pair posted anti-Semitic messages on Facebook.
In fact, the only New Jersey Republican speaking at this year’s RNC convention will be Congressman Jeff Van Drew.
