THEY’RE FRIENDS, SORT OF

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

GOP gover­nors are ob­vi­ously in touch with their in­ner Repub­li­cans. For the ini­tial din­ner at the re­cent Repub­li­can Gover­nors As­so­ci­a­tion an­nual meet­ing at a swank, pink stucco Boca Ra­ton, Florida re­sort, the au­gust group dined upon surf-and-turf. No del­i­cate veg­e­tar­ian fare here. This was lob­ster and steak land for the likes of Govs. Scott Walker, Bobby Jin­dal, Rick Perry, John Ka­sich, Mike Pence and more. They left it to Mr. New Jersey him­self for the ul­ti­mate re­al­ity check, though.

“We are all friends, but let’s be fair. If a group of us de­cided to run for pres­i­dent, we’ll com­pete with each other. I don’t think any of us have spent any time here try­ing to come up with some se­cret hand­shake or, you know, blood oath to each other about what we’ll do or we won’t do,” out­go­ing RGA head Gov. Chris Christie told jour­nal­ists in an open­ing press con­fer­ence.
