Christie Will Accept Medicaid Expansion

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) will expand the state's Medicaid program to cover 300,000 uninsured residents, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Christie joins Republican governors from Ohio, Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, North Dakota, Florida and New Mexico as well as Gov. Lincoln Chaffee of Rhode Island, an Independent, in embracing the larger Medicaid program.

Politico notes Christie's "status as a potential 2016 presidential contender adds political intrigue. He's already taken flak from fellow Republicans for heaping praise on Obama after Hurricane Sandy at a critical time in the 2012 presidential campaign."
