For the record it looks as if Christie has reached a plateau.Weight, not votes.I don't think he's lost any weight for a month or two.May he should try NSNG.

Buono's pick of a female running mate, Milly Silva, makes just the third all-female gubernatorial ticket in American history.

The band portion of the lap band is filled with normal saline and the amount of saline in the band is what determines the size of the patient's stomach and how much they can eat. Saline can be either added or taken out of the band, depending on the patient's weight loss progression and other factors. Most of the surgeons I work with prefer for their patients to slowly add saline to the band. Sometimes patients will go awhile with the same fill amount and won't lose much, if any, weight.

As someone battling a weight issue, myself, I'm not going to criticize him on that front. Good luck to him, as a mater of fact.

No surprise: Chris Christie re-elected as New Jersey governor ...





In 2009, Christie defeated incumbent Democratic Governor Jon Corzine by just three points, but his margin of victory was far more substantial this time around. His support improved among nearly every demographic group.





Christie solidified his base winning near unanimous support from Republicans (92 percent) conservatives (85 percent), and tea party supporters (87 percent) but more importantly, he made inroads with some traditionally Democratic groups. Fifty-five percent of women cast their vote for Christie, a group he lost to Democrat Jon Corzine four years ago. And while Democrat Buono won the support of African Americans by a large margin, Christie managed to capture one in five black voters - doubling the level of support he received four years ago (9 percent).





Christie won the support of both independents and moderates. In 2009, he won moderates by just three points over Corzine, but he won them by 21 points this year.





Most New Jersey Democrats (67 percent) did support their party's candidate, but 31 percent of the state's Democrats crossed over and backed Christie, the Republican. A mere 8 percent of Democrats voted for Christie in 2009. His share of the vote also increased among lower income voters. Forty-four percent of voters in a union household backed Christie; up from 38 percent four years ago.





Christie's supporters were enthusiastic. Nearly seven in 10 of his voters strongly favored him, but that was the case for only 41 percent of Buono's supporters. In fact, three in 10 Buono voters said they had reservations about her and 26 percent supported her mostly because they disliked Christie.

Strange that so many people who disagreed with most of his policies voted for him.

NJ voters thanked Christie for getting down with them and sticking by them after Sandy happened, for being a true in heart Jersey boy. It was loyalty, not policy, that won it for him. Nobody was going to beat him in this election. Nobody. I can't even begrudge him the win the way I would have. The Democrats knew it would be an empty exercise, one to chalk up and hope for next time.

Did anyone catch Christie's victory speech last night? I thought it was just awful. Even Mr. Filly, who seems to want to like Christie, said it was "schlock" and went to sleep. :P
