The Associated Press has called the New Jersey governor's race for Chris Christie. The Republican won in his Democratic-leaning state despite being badly outspent by Gov. Jon Corzine. Corzine, though, was never a very popular governor and voters usually find a way to get rid of elected officials they don't like.
Now comes the tough part. Christie will enter office more badly bruised than Bob McDonnell in Virginia. He has a mandate to cut property taxes and a budget situation that will make it difficult to do so.
