Christie: Debate will turn presidential race ‘upside down’

If Mitt Romney campaign’s is worried about measuring debate expectations for Wednesday night, Chris Christie hasn’t gotten the message.

“This whole race is going to be turned upside down come Thursday morning,” the Republican governor from New Jersey told CBS “Face The Nation” host Bob Schieffer Sunday. Christie pointed to the Republican presidential nominee’s performance in the primary debates, saying the debates will be an opportunity to speak with out being “filtered” or “spun” by Romney’s critics.

Christie acknowledged Romney had had a “rough couple of weeks,” but that Wednesday’s debate would turn the race into a “barn burner”.
