You know it’s bad when Presidential candidate, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has to be this direct toward another candidate, but that’s the case.
Rubio said he opposed the Omnibill and also threatened to block it but missed the vote because he was campaigning for president. NOTE: All other Senatorial candidates running for president were there to vote against it.
“[Rubio] matters as much as I do, and I don’t have a vote in the Senate. He has one and didn’t go,” Christie, a rival White House hopeful, said. “Only in Washington could you have the guts to say I’m against something that you have a vote to vote ‘no’ on and then just not go and then put out a press release after it gets passed to say, ‘this is why I was opposed to it’.”
“Well, dude, show up to work and vote no, right?” Christie said. “Just show up to work and vote no, and if you don’t want to, then quit.”
