My Christie Crush is so bad now I hear the Partridge Family, I think I love you, whenever I see one of these Christie videos. ..
…Christie was concluding a town hall meeting with Whitman when an angry audience member criticized her for not taking questions.
“What are you hiding?” shouted Ed Buck, in jeans and a light shirt in the front row of the 400-person event. “You’re looking like Arnold in a dress,” he said in a reference to outgoing California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Before Whitman could respond, Christie stepped down from the stage and got in Buck’s face.
“Hey, listen. You know what. You want to yell, yell at me,” Christie said, shutting down Buck as Christie’s bodyguards calmly but quickly approached the two men. “It’s people who raise their voices and yell and scream like you who are dividing this country. We’re here to bring this country together.”
Update 4: RGA backs Nikki Haley as the candidate:
A surprisingly blunt press release from the Republican Governors Association all but calls for Rep. Gresham Barrett (R-S.C.) to stand down and let Nikki Haley start running for governor of South Carolina, after she missed the right to avoid a runoff by the narrowest of margins.
The statement from spokesman Tim Murtaugh:
The voters of South Carolina made a clear choice in Nikki Haley, notwithstanding the possibility of a runoff. The outcome is all but certain.Nikki Haley withstood a barrage of innuendoes and slurs in the closing days of the primary season and persevered to the finish with dignity, determination and confidence. Moreover, receiving half of the votes against two other statewide incumbent Republicans and a sitting Congressman speaks volumes of her strength as a candidate and bodes very well for her in the General Election. We congratulate Nikki for her grit and determination…
Update 3: 12:38am EST: AP calls NV Senate GOP primary for Sharron Angle 38% to Sue Lowden 28%. I donated to Lowden, I thought she had the better chance to beat Reid like a rug. Good luck to Angle!
Ladies sweep the night :0)

Now THIS is how to concede, h/t RCP liveblog:
Concession statement from Chuck DeVore: “I just completed my telephone call to Carly Fiorina, to congratulate her on her victory this evening. She is our party’s nominee. I endorse her. I will support her. I will vote for her. And I call upon all of you to do the same in November.”
Update: 11:43pm EST: AP calls it- Meg Whitman wins GOP Gubernatorial race~
Drinks are on me!
“We’re going to take out Blanche Lincoln in Arkansas,” said Moulitsas.
Yeah not so much.
Another one who may not be as red as the right may like, but who can beat the Dem. And Jerry Brown needs to be beaten like a rug on a clothesline.
Even Axelrasputin has embraced Rahm’s policy of recruiting conservaDems to try and hold seats, the GOP needs to win the battle so we can fight the war and restore the economy from 2010 to 2012, or at least hold the line on the destruction the Democratic spending tsunami has wrought.
A new Public Policy Polling survey in California shows Meg Whitman (R) with a big lead over over Steve Poizner (R) in the Republican primary for governor, 51% to 26%.
One poll showed the race tightening a couple weeks ago, but it appears to have been an outlier.
