Assemblymen react to Christie’s ballpark confrontation with Chicago Cubs fan

Gov. Chris Christie made headlines Sunday night when he confronted a fan at a Chicago Cubs v. Milwaukee Brewer game.

Video of the incident shows Christie face to face with the heckler, who reportedly called Christie a “hypocrite.”

Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick (R-NJ) reacted to the incident.

“He’s a tough guy, he put politicians in jail, this is his demeanor. I happen to like him, so I guess the rule is don’t call him names when he’s with his kid. Do not state disparaging things about him when he’s with his family,” Bramnick expressed.

Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-NJ) shared his thoughts.

“I just think that’s wrong and it doesn’t look good, As an official elected and a public figure. You may get people to try and get under your skin and you need to be above it. You represent the office that you hold and I think that’s part of it. So, You always need to be civil and you need to be polite to people. There’s no such thing about getting in somebody’s face and I think that’s not the right way.”

Christie was in Milwaukee over the weekend visiting his son, who works for the Brewers.
