A look back at NJ Governor Chris Christie's State of the State speeches. "We needed tough leadership to deal with these problems". "The issues you're talking about are exciting". State law requires that there is an even distribution between Republicans and Democrats on our Superior Court.
Christie was a short-list finalist to be Trump's running mate, before Trump picked now-Vice President Mike Pence. He said New Jersey is in way better financial shape than when he came in. "I did it the way I wanted to do it and I was myself the whole time".
Perhaps Christie's most lasting legacy will be his work to combat the opioid crisis, a cause near and dear to his heart after he lost a friend to drug addiction years ago. His final state of the state address focused on his reform of public workers' pension system, a balanced state budget and lower taxes.
Christie did not speak about his failed run for president in 2016, nor the Bridgegate scandal, in which Bill Baroni, a former deputy director at the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey, and Bridget Anne Kelly, who was Christie's deputy chief of staff, were convicted in connection with the September 2013 lane closures at the approach to the George Washington Bridge.
"After seven years as US attorney, I didn't need to seem to be tough on crime; I am tough on crime", Christie said, but went on to talk about the importance of second chances underlying the bail reform effort. The governor also OK'd a proposal to extend civil rights protections to nursing mothers. Christie also thanked Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-Gloucester) and George Norcross, the South Jersey political boss who has had a close relationship with Christie across the aisle for years.

"Bridgegate was much harder for me than losing the presidential race", Christie told NJ Advance Media. To strive, to seek, to find and never to yield'.
Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, described Mr. Christie's tenure as a "pretty interesting ride", saying he entered office in 2010 as somewhat of an unknown commodity.
Christie is the first Garden State governor to give eight State of the State addresses in almost 30 years. "So that tells you how long we've been active in this battle", says Kevin Meara.
Murphy will replace Christie as Governor next week. "I leave it next week even prouder to be one of you".
William Palatucci, a member of the Republican National Committee from New Jersey and longtime Christie adviser, said Mr. Christie is still hashing out what comes next and that he has been approached with various opportunities. "None of the things the governor talked about would've happened without Democratic support".
