For this episode of the Ballpark, we head to New Jersey and take an in-depth look at the state’s recent politics and controversial former Governor, Chris Christie. We also discuss the state of policing in New Jersey with the chief of the Camden County Police Department, and we find out just why New Jersey is known as the Garden State.

Contributors: Ashley Koning (Rutgers University), Joe Miller (LSE General Course), Scott Thompson (Camden County Police)
