Tapes from 2011, obtained exclusively by Radio Sputnik BradCast's Brad Friedman, reveal Christie giving the keynote speech at a Koch Brothers' summer summit event, a secret gathering of millionaires and billionaires that year in Vail, Colorado. In the tapes, Christie said that he used his powers as governor to constrain spending. David Koch, in his introduction of Christie, is heard detailing a secret meeting the two had a few months earlier in Manhattan, leading Koch to describe the NJ Governor as "my kind of guy."

According to State University of New York at Buffalo Political Science Professor Frank Zagare, Christie carries the embarrassment of the September 2013 “Bridgegate” scandal, when his state government was involved in purposely causing traffic jams to punish political opponents by closing lanes at the toll plaza to the George Washington Bridge.
