Do you think it's possible that Chris Christie took his shot at Marco Rubio in the last New Hampshire debate, knowing that if he could successfully torpedo him it would make him a prime candidate as the #2 on the ticket for someone else who is polling better and isn't going to drop out of the race this week? Indications are that Christie is about to drop out
I'm just speculating. I know a lot of people are thinking that other candidate might be Donald Trump. But I was thinking Jeb Bush. Sure, Trump makes sense, but so does Jeb. All Christie had left to offer was his steamroller tactics. Not money, not sufficient support. Both Trump and Bush have support and money. Both could use Rubio out.
Would Trump really go for a NY Republican - NJ Republican ticket and think that it might be a winner for him? Jeb might think Florida NJ is a good geographic mix. Would Trump want Christie on the ticket if he could ask for Cruz who offers him some grassroots support. Jeb Bush doesn't appear to be interested in the grassroots voters. He appears to want an establishment running mate.
Plus, there were rumors that Bush, Christie and possibly Kasich were colluding to take out Rubio prior to the debate. Where there's smoke, there's fire.
Again, I'm just speculating, but I think Christie is banking on Jeb. Then again, he could have deals with both Bush and Trump.
