Gov. Chris Christie endured two controversial days in Colorado this week as a part of a tour he’s been embarking on across the country for his position as chairman of the Republican Governors Association.
Christie arrived Wednesday and openly backed former congressman GOP gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez in the upcoming governor’s race against the Democratic contender, current governor John Hickenlooper.
Controversial situations such as Bridgegate and Christie’s stance on marijuana legalization were brought to light in the midst of his trip.
According to The Denver Post, Beauprez defended Christie to Democrats critical of Christie’s past, saying that the assertion that he is corrupt is "pure, utter nonsense" because he took responsibility and immediately fired the individuals involved in Bridgegate while keeping the public informed.
