Chris Christie lays out a national vision

Gov. Chris Christie today delivered a broadside against the broken politics of Washington and the need for straight talk to solve the country's problem in a speech that will almost certainly stoke talk that of a 2012 presidential bid by the New Jersey Republican.

Pence for governor? Indiana Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman bows out

Indiana Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman said Monday that she will not run for governor in 2012, leaving a opening that many expect will now be filled by Rep. Mike Pence. The Republican congressman has been eyeing a presidential campaign, but sources in Indiana are now expecting him to run for governor. Skillman's exit this morning makes that campaign look even more likely.
