Christie Meets With GOP Senators in Closed-Door Session

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is meeting with Senate Republican leaders in the Capitol, and though the topic of the meeting could not be confirmed, it’s likely they could discuss the current impasse over funding the government and extending the debt limit.

The GOP governor was spotted Wednesday with his entourage entering an office near Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s leadership suite. Christie has been a vocal opponent of the ongoing shutdown.

Entering the meeting, Sens. John Cornyn of Texas and Roy Blunt of Missouri refused to comment on whether they invited Christie or the New Jersey governor invited himself.

McConnell was not seen entering the closed-door session, but his detail and a staffer were in the hall outside the meeting room.

UPDATE, 2:58 p.m.: A McConnell spokesman e-mailed to clarify the nature of Christie’s visit.

“He’s in town for Chiesa events and dropped by for a courtesy visit at [the governor’s] request,” McConnell spokesman Michael Brumas said.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Nearly all of the things you state happens to be supprisingly legitimate and it makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light previously. This piece really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject goes. Nonetheless at this time there is one position I am not too cozy with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual main theme of the point, allow me see what the rest of the visitors have to point out.Nicely done.

    I do enjoy the way you have framed this specific difficulty plus it really does present me a lot of fodder for consideration. However, coming from everything that I have seen, I really wish as the reviews pile on that people keep on point and not get started on a tirade regarding some other news of the day. Yet, thank you for this excellent piece and even though I can not go along with the idea in totality, I respect your point of view.

    I’ve been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours lately, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It?¦s beautiful value enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the internet will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.
