WASHINGTON - In a nod to onetime vice presidential contenders, the Republican convention has given key roles to Chris Christie, the New Jersey governor, and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. Christie will deliver the keynote address while Rubio, a conservative favorite, will introduce Romney on Aug. 30, the final night of the gathering in Tampa. Announcing the lineup, Republican National Convention Chairman Reince Priebus called Christie “a leader of principle and conviction,” and Rubio “one of America's most dynamic and inspiring leaders.” Christie said it was an honor to deliver the convention's keynote address.

Hurricane Sandy forced Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert to cancel their shows Monday and Tuesday, but Wednesday night “The Daily Show” and "The Colbert Report" were back on the air - and boy, was it good to have them back. Both hosts took the opportunity to praise the first responders, medical professionals, transit workers and government officials who worked to save lives throughout the storm and its messy aftermath, singling out the performance of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in particular.

Well, as they say in Jersey, “Chris Christie didn't do nuthin'!” On Thursday, the New Jersey governor's handpicked legal team cleared him of any wrongdoing in "Bridgegate" - the four-day traffic tie-up in Fort Lee, N.J., in September. The governor played no part in orchestrating the traffic nightmare, the report (which cost New Jersey taxpayers about $1 million) said. Instead, it faulted two Christie loyalists who basically, it found, went rogue. PHOTO ESSAY: Chris Christie, President Obama and the 'ignorance is bliss' dodge It also said that one of those rogues, David Wildstein, insisted that he had told Christie about the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge while they were happening.

About 400 firefighters continued to battle a blaze along the New Jersey shore Thursday evening, with Gov. Chris Christie reporting that the blaze had destroyed some areas. Seaside Park -- a community about 80 miles south of New York City with a year-round population of about 2,200 -- was still recovering from the wrath of Superstorm Sandy when the fire began around 3:30 p.m., reportedly in an ice cream shop. Officials would not speculate on the cause of the fire, which swept northward along the boardwalk with the help of 40 mph wind gusts.

The two most famous Jersey Boys in America today are the stars of an unrequited-love story . Gov. Chris Christie, a gruff-talking Republican, is also one of Bruce Springsteen's most devoted lifelong fans despite The Boss' well-known liberal beliefs. This has made for some awkwardness between them at New Jersey events. Jeffrey Goldberg thoroughly documented Christie's unrequited Bruce affection in a piece in the Atlantic this summer , and it's actually kind of moving. The enthusiastic Christie will sing his heart out to "Thunder Road" at Springsteen shows, while The Boss has generally kept his distance from the outspoken conservative, sometimes passing right by him backstage with barely a greeting (though, reportedly, Springsteen has been friendly to Christie's children)

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Former California Gov. Gray Davis weighed in Tuesday on the cross-country feud between Jerry Brown and Chris Christie, predicting that Brown will easily best the New Jersey governor in a physical fitness contest. “I'm betting on Jerry Brown in his challenge because this guy runs every day -- I work out every day with weights but I can't do chin-ups. He can do chin-ups, he can do push-ups, I'm telling you Christie better go on a crash course because he's doomed for a distant second,” Davis said, standing outside the California delegation hotel on the opening day of the Democratic National Convention.

On his Comedy Central show Wednesday night, Stephen Colbert charged that hurricanes have a liberal bias -- and who can disagree? Katrina sank President George W. Bush, Isaac knocked a day off the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., and now Sandy may be messing with Mitt. Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, one of the Romney campaign's top surrogates has been standing before microphones and going on TV to rain praise on President Obama. Yes, Chris Christie, New Jersey's Republican governor, the guy who gave the keynote address in Tampa, has suddenly gotten all nonpartisan merely because his state has been devastated by a super storm.
