Gov. Chris Christie may be facing a scandal now, but last year, he cruised to a re-election victory with an impressive majority. He alluded to that big 2013 election win in his inaugural remarks Tuesday.

“It wasn’t just some of our people who affirmed this course,” he said. “It was not a vocal plurality like four years ago. It was the largest and loudest voice of affirmation that the people of our state have given to any direction in three decades.”

Christie received a whopping 60 percent of the vote over Democrat Barbara Buono. He won the Hispanic vote and a significant proportion of black voters.

“I will not let up. I will insist we work together,” he told attendees at the address. “And I will insist this government truly work for those who pay for it.”
