New Jersey Gov. Gone Wild Chris Christie will receive the Pete du Pont Freedom Award at a dinner in Delaware in September. In a statement announcing the award, du Pont, a former Republican governor of Delaware, said:
Those of us in Delaware who value individual freedom enabled by smaller and less intrusive government have watched with almost hometown pride as Chris Christie had led New Jersey away from a government that was out of control.
Hometown pride? The people who actually call New Jersey their hometown don’t have much pride for Christie.
