Previous New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) poked a sore location of Donald Trump’s on Wednesday right after the previous president attacked him and two sitting GOP governors as “RINOs” for supporting Ga Gov. Brian Kemp (R).
“Insightful commentary about three Republican Governors who were overwhelmingly re-elected by their people from a former president who dropped to Joe Biden,” Christie tweeted. “Maybe the “R” in RINO really stands for re-elected.”
RINO, a person of Trump’s favourite insults for conservatives who don’t aid him, stands for “Republican in name only.”
Trump has had a vendetta towards Kemp because the governor’s selection to certify Georgia’s 2020 election results, hindering Trump’s relentless efforts to flip the presidential vote depend to his favor under untrue pretenses of fraud at the polls. Trump’s most up-to-date assertion accused Kemp of getting the “worst election integrity governor in the country.”
Christie, Ducey and Ricketts are campaigning for Kemp in his primary obstacle in opposition to former Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), whom Trump has endorsed. Perdue has peddled Trump’s lies that the election he missing to Biden was “rigged and stolen.”
Christie, who ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 and appears likely to do so once more in 2024, was a longtime ally of Trump’s. He has been deeply important of the previous president about his job in inciting the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters.
