Chris Christie to Romney: Show Your Tax Returns

Chris Christie may be a Mitt Romney supporter, but that’s not stopping him from jumping on the tax-records bandwagon. Romney has already addressed demands that he release his tax returns, saying he will do so in April, but the New Jersey governor took to the Today show Wednesday to urge his friend to “put them out sooner than later because it's always better to have full disclosure.” The frontrunner in the Republican presidential primary has estimated that his tax rate is probably 15 percent—something that Christie confirms is not surprising, as the former Massachusetts governor has not earned an official salary for a while.
