For the second time in a week, conservative commentator Ann Coulter said this country needs N.J. Gov. Chris Christie to run for president, reports The Hill.
“I don’t care if [Chris Christie] wants to run, his country needs him, it appears,” Coulter said in a Monday interview with Fox News. “There are a few things he’s a little bit soft on… We have to run somebody and if we don’t run Chris Christie, it’s going to be Romney because Republican primary voters for some reason refuse to do any research before voting. They vote for the name of anyone they’ve ever heard before.”
During her speech at Saturday’s Conservative Political Action Conference, Coulter said President Barack Obama will be reelected for a 2012 presidency if Christie decides not to run against him.
“If we don’t run Chris Christie, Romney will be the nominee and we’ll lose,” Coulter said.
