Christie Closed-Mouthed On “Egg As Person” Movement

See all our coverage of Mississippi Initiative (Prop) 26 here.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was just steps away from running for president. Now, he’s back in the limelight, ready to campaign with a Mississippi gubernatorial candidate.

Just don’t ask him how he feels about Initiative 26.


Gov. Chris Christie won’t say whether he supports an initiative on Mississippi’s Nov. 8 ballot that seeks to declare that life begins when a human egg is fertilized.

The initiative is endorsed by GOP gubernatorial candidate Phil Bryant, who Christie will campaign for later in the week.

Christie says that campaigning for Bryant doesn’t mean he supports the measure. However, Christie reiterated today that he is against abortion rights.

Sounds like someone is trying to play nice with the social conservatives to prep for a run in 2016.
