Will The Fat Lady Sing?

Big Republican money is getting scared, and they would like to play one more big card: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

So argues TPMs Benjy Sarlin.

There’s a lot of buzz around a Chris Christie run this week, thanks mostly to an all-out effort by big money Republicans to recruit him for a run.

Sarlin has names and addresses.

For Republican elites skeptical of Mitt Romney or worried his Obamacare baggage is too much to overcome, Christie holds a natural appeal. He’s proudly anti-union and, in private with top donors at least, bluntly demands cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid to fix the deficit.
