Chris Christie Comes to Kentucky

Kentucky Republicans will hear from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie tomorrow at the state GOP's annual Lincoln Day Dinner. Christie had been touted as a potential presidential candidate in this year's Republican primary, but he opted not to enter the race. He’s still being talked about as a potential vice presidential running mate. His visit has captured the attention of Democrats who accuse Christie of "pandering to the extreme right wing base." Democratic U.S. Representative John Yarmuth has scheduled a press conference today to discuss the visit. The Lincoln Day dinner will dinner will be held tonight in Lexington.
