New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie looks to win re-election easily tonight, but until the final numbers are in, reporters and guests had better keep their hands off the celebratory cake. To be honest, it’s pretty impressive.
Boston Bombing Court Docs: “Muslims are beginning to rise. … Know you are fighting men who look into the barrel of your gun and see heaven, how can you complete with that? We are promised victory and we will surely get it”

Earlier this month, Governor Christie signed ten of those gun bills into law, but he left three deeply flawed bills for today’s action.
