Marco Rubio touts Chris Christie in fundraising pitch

“Conservative leadership is hard to find these days, but the voters in New Jersey have seen it firsthand,” Rubio writes in the email from his Reclaim America PAC. “After living through 8 years of skyrocketing taxes, rampant job loss, and the largest budget deficit per person in the country, the people of New Jersey were desperate for real leadership and a new direction. And that’s what they got in Governor Chris Christie. As Governor, Chris Christie challenged New Jersey politics as usual. And his limited government and free enterprise reforms are helping turn around one of the bluest of blue states.”

The email ticks through Christie’s “pro-growth policies” and references his performance during Sandy. “As Governor, Chris Christie has spent the last 3 years fighting for the conservative principles of limited government, free enterprise and liberty, in a place that isn’t exactly used to them. And now he needs our help,” Rubio writes.
