With Chris Christie’s predictable victory in New Jersey tonight, and with Ken Cuccinelli likely falling short by a reasonably small margin, the Evening Meme of the punditocracy is set:
The combination of outcomes in New Jersey and Virginia - a certain GOP win in the former and a likely Democratic win in the latter - could strengthen the hand of Republicans who have argued that the party must embrace a more centrist-friendly, reform-minded brand of conservatism, rather than the hard-edged activism of the tea party.
Yeah, it’s Christie Time for the MSM.
