Christie Mends Fences with Establishment

National Review looks at how New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) has worked to overcome the damage that his embrace of President Obama in the waning days of the 2012 presidential election did with many establishment Republicans.

"Christie's inner circle has taken the complaints seriously, fearing their implications ahead of the 2016 presidential election. For the past nine months, they have quietly labored behind the scenes to woo the party's skeptical power brokers. Their maneuvers have included huddles with Republican moneymen, off-the-record powwows with conservative journalists, and late-night conversations with past backers."

"Officially, such sessions with national Republicans and figures of the right are considered part of Christie's reelection campaign, but his playbook is filled with the broader, tacit push for his political rehabilitation."
