Continuing where he left off in 2013, Chris Christie remains the most talked about Republican in the country … only this time he may not like what everyone is saying. The week’s Political Junkie show focuses on the New Jersey governor and whether the “Bridgegate” scandal is a minor blip, or something more. Host Ken Rudin talks to Republican strategist Mike Murphy, who says that Christie is neither a clear frontrunner for 2016 nor damaged goods … but he concedes that all the facts have yet to come out.
And then we go to Iowa, where Des Moines Register pollster Ann Selzer gives us a snapshot of a very critical state, two years before the presidential caucuses.
Plus: a new trivia question, and “this day in history” features former Illinois Sen. and 2004 presidential hopeful Carol Moseley Braun.
