Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has become the state’s first governor in decades to leave office without having broken a leg.
The three elected governors before Christie each broke a leg during their time in office, a former Obama administration official pointed out Tuesday on Twitter.
In a series of tweets, Eric Columbus detailed how each of the former governors had broken their legs.
Congratulations to Chris Christie on becoming the first elected New Jersey governor in *decades* to leave office without breaking one of his legs! 1/— Eric Columbus (@EricColumbus) January 16, 2018
Christie’s Democratic predecessor Jon Corzine broke his left leg in a car accident in 2007.
Democrat Jim McGreevey broke his leg during a walk on the beach in 2002.
Republican Christine Todd Whitman broke her right leg during a ski trip in Switzerland in 1999.
Before Christie, the last elected NJ governor to avoid such a mishap was Jim Florio, who left office in 1994. 6/— Eric Columbus (@EricColumbus) January 16, 2018
