Christie on VP: ‘I Got This’

At least there are some things Chris Christie and Cory Booker agree on. The Republican governor of New Jersey and the Democratic mayor of Newark teamed up for a Web video released on Tuesday. In the video created for the New Jersey Press Association Legislative Correspondents Club, Booker pretends to field a call from Romney where he is asked to consider a spot on Romney’s ticket. Booker says, “Yes, yes that was me running into the fire” and admits to shoveling snow. But then says he’s not a “back-up singer” and “you need a big …,” and then Christie jumps in and says, “Excuse me, Mayor, I got this.” Christie also released a video Tuesday lamenting the amount of times he’s been asked to join Romney’s ticket.
