NJ Governor honored in Delaware

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will receive the 2011 Pete du Pont Freedom Award tonight in Wilmington.

 The award is designed to “promote the ideals which drove one of Delaware’s most successful administrations,” namely Governor Pete du Pont’s.  The award has been given to four people since 2003: columnist and political commentator George Will; former Speaker of the House and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich; former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani; and publisher, Steve Forbes.  Christie will get the award at a dinner tonight at the Chase Center on the Riverfront.
