Instead, Christie said he was here to support Republican gubernatorial candidate Walt Havenstein as the two of them greeted patrons Friday evening at T-Bones restaurant.
Christie said that as chairman of the RGA, it is not typical to get involved in primary elections, but he chose to make an exception because of his strong belief in Havenstein.
“Listen, I don’t respond to every crazy rumor out there. I’ve got a job to do,” he said.
“I have already communicated with Scott today. He is doing well. I completely support him, and I look forward to going to Wisconsin and campaigning for him at the appropriate time,” said Christie. “He is a good man and I am with him.”
Trey Taraila said they wanted to let local voters know there are opposing opinions about what is best for New Hampshire.
Prior to Christie’s visit, state Democratic Party Chairman Raymond Buckley said it is fitting that Havenstein would tout the endorsement of Christie, “as their records of failed leadership, disastrous economic strategies and lack of job creation are actually pretty similar.”
“I think he is appealing to people,” said Carroll, who believes that Havenstein will win the primary election.
