HILLSBOROUGH - Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) held a town hall meeting today in Hillsborough, where he spent the morning clearing up confusion over public worker unions.
The governor suggested that recent labor protests at the Capitol were much ado about nothing, and explained that he hasn't suggested that the state take away collective bargaining rights for people.
Public union workers aren't so sure. A member of the state's largest teachers union suggested to News 12 New Jersey that the governor is merely playing politics, catering his stance to polls showing voter support for collective bargaining. Christie again shrugged off a run for president, but did brag a bit in an interview with the National Review, where he's quoted as saying..."I have people calling me and saying 'let me explain how you could win'. And I'm like 'you're barking up the wrong tree, I already know I could win."
