N.J. Republicans: "Yes, we did!"

A familiar chant breaks out before Chris Christie's victory speech

Sometimes, politics makes for some very strange combinations. Like the New Jersey Republicans at gubernatorial candidate Chris Christie's victory rally, who on Tuesday night broke out in a slightly different version of a chant the GOP came to hate last year. As Christie began speaking, his supporters started yelling, in unison, "Yes, we did!"

The governor-elect had to pause his speech for a minute, and appeared a little confused, but he eventually stepped back from the podium and began clapping along.
