Chris Christie was re-elected as New Jersey governor in a landslide Tuesday, posting a 60-39 percent victory over his challenger, state Sen. Barbara Buono.
For months, the popular Republican held a sizable lead in the polls as Buono failed to get her campaign off the ground. He never gave an inch.
Chris Christie was re-elected with widespread support from men, women, independents, members of his own party, and even three in 10 Democrats.
"I'm the luckiest guy in the world," Christie said, flanked by his wife Mary Pat and their four children, during his acceptance speech in Asbury Park, N.J.
The Democratic challenger, Buono, won the votes of liberals, African-Americans, and young voters, but that was not nearly enough to stop Christie.
