Christie's Wife Leaves Lucrative Wall Street Job


Rizzo, Salvador, The Record (Bergen County, NJ)


Governor Christie's wife has resigned as a top finance executive on Wall Street, a spokesman for the governor said Friday, in the latest sign that the Christies are preparing for a presidential run.

Mary Pat Christie was a managing director at Angelo, Gordon & Co., an alternative-investment firm with $27 billion in assets under management.

As recently as last week, the governor's wife said she was unsure what to do about her job if the governor jumped into the 2016 race. She told NBC it would be difficult to leave Wall Street. At Angelo Gordon, her work focused on strategic planning and marketing for distressed assets and bank debt.

"I do have a great job," she said on NBC's "Today."

"I'm not sure what I'm going to do with regards to that, but I know I want to spend a lot of time with my family."

Of the four Christie children, the two eldest are college students. …
