Is Christie's Cameo on 'The Michael J. Fox Show' Overboard?
Will New Jersey Gov. Christie’s constant presence in America’s pop culture become too much, eventually turning off the GOP primary voters he needs to woo before he can advance to the general election?
He’s eaten doughnuts with David Letterman, crooned with Jimmy Fallon and poked fun at himself on "Saturday Night Live." Now Gov. Chris Christie is taking his personality to prime time with an appearance on Michael J. Fox’s upcoming NBC sitcom.
With the latest cameo, the governor hopes to position himself as the only Republican with the mass appeal to attract Democrats and independents in the 2016 presidential contest.
But will Christie’s constant presence in America’s pop culture become too much, eventually turning off the GOP primary voters he needs to woo before he can advance to the general election?
Experts say that’s a real risk, but one Christie and his media-savvy team will work hard to avoid.a
