Governor Christie projects “late spring, early summer” for an announcement on whether he’ll run for president. But why wait so long? With Ted Cruz formally jumping in the race, Matt and Tom take a hard look at Christie’s viability.

Plus, one year after the Mastro Report made ethics recommendations that Christie said he would fully embrace, the administration has adopted precious few of them. We look at what they did and didn’t do.

We also look at some of the difficulties a top Christie official faced trying to help Sandy victims.

And… we consider the “Corvette affair.”

Host David Furst is joined by New Jersey Public Radio’s Matt Katz, Tom Moran, editorial page editor for The Star-Ledger, and Heather Haddon, of The Wall Street Journal.
