During his press conference this afternoon, Governor Chris Christie confirmed published reports that he has personally apologized to North Wildwood Mayor Patrick Rosenello for calling him “crazy” during a Town Hall meeting on the presidential campaign trail in New Hampshire yesterday.
Christie said that the “crazy” remarks were not the first time, and probably won’t be the last, that he got carried away at town hall style event.
He said he felt bad about the remarks when he woke this morning and called Rosenello at 8 or 8:30 a. m.
Christie said that he suspected that the young woman who asked the question that prompted his rant was a plant from an adversary, since the woman would not give the governor the names or phone numbers of her family in New Jersey so that he could call them.
