Who is paying for the $1m+ in security detail for Chris Christie’s campaign? Perhaps the taxpayers of New Jersey

“Security costs incurred by state troopers who accompanied Gov. Chris Christie out of New Jersey for 261 days last year could be more than $1 million, according to NPR member station WNYC’s analysis, but the governor’s spokesman and the state police are not detailing the total nor who is picking up the tab.

Christie is afforded around-the-clock protection regardless of where he is or the nature of his travels. But security for trips out of state cost significantly more than the governor’s in-state business. Those trips include expenses for hotel rooms, gas, cellphones, $70-per-trooper daily payments for meals and wear-and-tear for at least two state-owned SUVs (Christie uses New Jersey state vehicles in New Hampshire and rents cars in Iowa).” –Full Story at NPR
