VIDEO: Christie Talks Down Romney Protester
He took on a woman at Exeter High School.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie tonight talked down a group of protesters – and a woman in particular – who interrupted a huge Mitt Romney campaign event at Exeter High School.
Christie, rumored as a possible vice president pick for Romney, took on a protester who chanted "Mitt kills job!" and then "Christie kills jobs!"
You can watch the exchange in the video above.
The crowd numbered about 1,000. There were another 200-plus members of the media.
Romney went after President Obama, rarely mentioning his GOP rivals. He was joined onstage by New Hampshire U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, another rumored vice president pick for Romney.
There were two interruptions by protesters. The chants during the first interruption were inaudible. Romney paused, then went on to say that the people have the right to protest – just before police removed them from the event. The second interruption was mentioned above involving Christie.
The New Jersey governor received noticeably louder applause at several points than Romney did.
