Chris Christie may not be running for president this go around, but he gave a recent speech where he laid out a possible GOP strategy against President Obama. Like Giuliani before him, the New jersey governor has a geographic advantage of being close to Wall Street fat cats. He's very smartly using this to his advantage to secure funds for future political campaigns.
A heavily-caffeinated Lawrence talked to msnbc's Andrea Mitchell this afternoon about Christie's savvy political strategy and why "he's doing everything right" by stringing our rumors of a 2012 bid.
Lawrence called Christie "the smartest Republican candidate playing in the game this year — and the game is Christie re-election in New jersey then a national future after that."
