Did Chris Christie Bully Carl Lewis Out of Race?

Yahoo Sports: "Shortly before Carl Lewis officially entered the 2011 state Senate election for New Jersey's 8th legislative district -- a Republican stronghold located in Philadelphia's outer suburbs -- Gov. Chris Christie caught wind of the decision. The Republican governor of New Jersey then called Lewis, a Democrat and nine-time gold-medal-winning Olympian in April of 2011."

Said Christie: "I'm going to come after you."

"The Christie administration said that a phone conversation took place but has denied that the governor tried to dissuade Lewis from running."
