Why Christie Cared So Much About Fort Lee

New York Times: "His campaign called them 'the Top 100,' the swing towns that Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey wanted to win as he prepared for a re-election campaign. Capturing these towns, sometimes referred to as mini-Ohios or mini-Floridas, would validate the governor's argument that he would be the most broadly appealing Republican choice for president in 2016."

"Staff members in the governor's office created tabbed and color-coded dossiers on the mayors of each town -- who their friends and enemies were, the policies and projects that were dear to them -- that were bound in notebooks for the governor to review in his S.U.V. between events."
