Chris Christie: No, the tea party doesn’t have too much influence in the GOP
Gov. Christie: No, I don’t. I think they’ve had influence. I think everybody who comes to the table in the Republican Party should have a voice. Everybody should have a voice. And I don’t think they’ve had too much influence–
O’Donnell: You don’t think that’s why the House Republicans have not been able to get to the fiscal cliff deal?
Christie: Listen, I think there’s so many reasons why they couldn’t — and a lot of them are personal. And I talked about this in my press conference. I think they get into these toxic competitions with each other. And these internal palace intrigue things that happen.
