It looks like Governor Christie will be debating his opponent in October. Christie and Barbara Buono will tangle on October 8 and Oct 15. In terms of the 2013 race the debates are a formality. Christie is cruising to an easy win.
The real question is how will Christie perform. In 2009, Christie’s performance was criticized. This will be the last national exposure for the governor in a debate until some point in the summer of 2015. How he does in both debates will leave a taste in people’s mouths. For Christie’s sake it had better be a good one.
