New Jersey Governor Chris Christie won 2010 Virginia Tea Party Patriots Convention Straw Poll in Richmond Virginia on October 9th.  Gov. Christie beat out other conservative favorites including Sarah Palin, Ron Paul, and Newt Gingrich.  Christie also topped Bobby Jindal, Mike Huckabee, Michele Bachmann, Mike Pence, Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, and Rick Santorum in the Virginia Tea Party Patriots Convention Straw Poll.

Gov. Christie won 14% of the votes followed by Sarah Palin 13.5%., Texas Rep. Ron Paul, 12.5%, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich winning 8.4%, and South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint with 7.3%.

The poll which HUMAN EVENTSsponsored “is unique because, for the first time, it takes the pulse of a number of Tea Party, Patriot and 9/12 organizations,” said Jamie Radtke, chairman of the Virginia Tea Party Patriots Federation.

Governor Chris Christie has indicated that he has no plans to run for President in 2010.  However, with Gov. Christie winning this tea party straw poll and most likely many more in the future, Chris Christie just might find himself drafted.
