New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is conspicuously absent from this year's Faith & Freedom Coalition "Road to Majority" Conference in Washington, where conservatives have gathered to hear from most of the Republican Party's potential 2016 presidential contenders.
But according to The Washington Post, Christie apparently opted for a less conservative crowd Friday in Chicago, where he's attending the Clinton Global Initiative, a decision the Post said "could sting him down the road" with political right Republicans, who are already upset with the close relationship he's established with President Barack Obama in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Now, as he takes the stage with former President Bill Clinton in Chicago for what's billed as a "Conversation on Leadership," some in the party are wondering if Christie really understands what it takes to win the Republican presidential nomination. He can't do it by wooing Democratic voters.
