Fox News media critic Howard Kurtz writes on Chris Christie's relationship with the press:

[T]he New Jersey governor loves engaging with the press. He feeds off it, he’s good at it, he’s energized by it. And I can’t think of another Republican since John McCain in 2000 who so openly embraced the media culture that many members of their party view as hostile.

Constantly engaging the media can be risky business. It means one testy answer or slip of the tongue becomes the flap of the day.  ...

But for now, as he becomes chairman of the Republican Governors Association, it’s clear that Christie views the press as a potential ally.
