Can Christie Avoid the Giuliani Jinx?

Lloyd Green notes that Gov. Chris Christie (R) "is at the top of the 2016 Republican presidential scrum and, for the moment, he even leads Sen. Rand Paul in Live Free or Die New Hampshire. The governor of reliably Blue New Jersey and possessor of an outsize personality, he commands attention."

"Yet, none of this guarantees Christie the nomination. Electability is not the same as nominability. He just needs to ask another Northeast Catholic executive who was also once deemed electable: former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Conceivably, Giuliani might have beaten Barack Obama; but he didn't get past the primaries. Not. Even. Close."
