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.

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.

New Jersey on Monday became the second state after California to ban so-called conversion therapy aimed at changing the sexual orientation of gay minors after Gov. Chris Christie signed into law a bill to prohibit the controversial practice. Christie, a Republican, had been expected to sign the legislation, which passed both houses of the state legislature in June. In a signing letter released after Christie took action, he said that he took into account concerns about the government "limiting parental choice" in the treatment of their children. "However, I also believe that on issues of medical treatment for children we must look to experts in the field to determine the relative risks and rewards" the governor added.

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.

The cross-country spat between California Gov. Jerry Brown and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie briefly stepped back into the spotlight Sunday, with Brown reiterating his invitation for a gubernatorial gauntlet of physical challenges. Christie sparked the repartee between the two by calling Brown “an old retread” during the Republican National Convention, pointing out to California delegates that he was just 14 years old when Brown challenged incumbent Jimmy Carter in the 1980 Democratic presidential primary.

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)
