How Chris Christie took over the Republican Governors Association

Phoenix, Arizona (CNN) - There wasn't room for the two of them.

In the fall of 2012, with the presidential race in full swing, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, two prominent Republican governors with well-known national ambitions, were engaged in a different kind of campaign.

    Is this guy guy for presidential stuff? Huge NJ deficit, huge problems. GOP is pretty much gone to dogs.

    This nation needs FEDERAL VOTING REFORM. Early voting solves.

    I love stories like this. Money quote:

    "One GOP operative familiar with the jockeying, however, said Jindal and his team were "a little frustrated" by Christie's attempt to pry away a job that the Louisiana governor thought was rightfully his"

    "A little frustrated" - classic.

    Political Ticker: more political stories, please. Save the propaganda for your competitors.

    Gov. Christie is too much of a bully, hot tempered, and vulgarly uncouth to be a statesman. No, thanks.

    He's a loud mouth bully, that's how he operates.
