The News from New Jersey:  Last week, Governor Chris Christie urged voters to reject school budgets in districts where teachers refused to freeze their pay to help the beleaguered state keep spending in check.

Yesterday, voters in over half of the state’s school districts did just that. New Jersey voters usually approve more than 70 percent of the school budgets. Voter turnout was high.

Governor Christie took his case to the people.  He made no excuses or apologies for what he is doing to return New Jersey to fiscal health.  Democrats whine.  Teachers’ unions prayed for his death!  But the voters responded.  This will strengthen Christie’s hand with recalcitrant legislators.  This is called  Leadership, and it’s working in one of the bluest states.  People respond to straight talk and honesty.
