7 N.J. Papers Call on Christie to Resign

Seven New Jersey-based newspapers issued a joint editorial Tuesday demanding Gov. Chris Christie resign following his failed presidential campaign, endorsement of Donald Trump, and his refusal to answer particular questions during a Monday press conference. "We’re fed up with Gov. Chris Christie’s arrogance," wrote the papers, which include the Gannett-owned Asbury Park Press, the Cherry Hill Courier-Post and the Morristown Daily Record—the latter of which is Christie's hometown paper. "We’re fed up with his opportunism. We’re fed up with his hypocrisy... For the good of the state, it’s time for Christie to do his long-neglected constituents a favor and resign as governor. If he refuses, citizens should initiate a recall effort."
