The mayor of the city of San Bernardino is a Christie fan! This article by Chris Richard from Press Enterprise.

With the help of his friend Stevie Earp (left) and his brother Phil Morris, Pat Morris (right) leads his guests in the Christie song San Bernardino at his campaign office in San Bernardino on Tuesday night. Stevie is a descendant of Western legend Wyatt Earp .. very appropriate when you consider Jeff Christie's affection for Americana.

Pat Morris beat four rivals in the San Bernardino mayoral election Tuesday (Nov 8, 2005), but still fell short of the majority vote he needed to avoid a run-off.
   Morris will face City Attorney Jim Penman in another election on February 7, 2006. Morris received 45 per cent of the vote, just short of the 50 per cent required to take office.
   "This is marvellously encouraging, just six points away from victory," Morris said. "I have a vision for the future of our city, with safe streets and more and better jobs, and the voters have responded to that".
   At Morris' campaign headquarters next to City Hall, about 150 festive supporters circulated and yelled greetings to friends, while a giant screen flashed the latest campaign numbers. Salsa music blared.
   Pat Morris loves the Christie song San Bernardino and is backing its adoption as the city's official song. Morris is a judge and can often be heard singing the song inside council chambers!
   Update: Pat eventually won by a landslide majority.
