Christie Received Apology From Romney For ‘Double Down’ Leaks
The New Jersey governor told Jake Tapper on Tuesday that the former presidential candidate has apologized to him over damaging dish in Mark Halperin and John Heileman’s “Double Down”:
“Mitt called me right away, and I could tell he was really embarrassed and outraged about it,” Christie told CNN.
In a Double Down excerpt released by TIME.com Saturday, Romney’s camp had several concerns about Christie, including difficulties working with his staff, lateness to events, and his overall health. At one point, Romney marveled at Christie wearing a suit, remarking “Guys! Look at that!”
“It’s very disappointing,” Christie said CNN Tuesday about those details becoming public. “I think it’s a complete violation of trust of me and the spirit within which I entered that process.”
