Atlantic City lawyer, talk show host and conservative activist Seth Grossman is contemplating a primary campaign against Gov. Chris Christie (R), PolitickerNJ reports.

“Why would any Republican in his right mind want to support Chris Christie?” he told the Web site. “Republican voters deserve a choice."

Grossman, who leads a conservative group called “Liberty and Prosperity,” has campaigned for lower taxes and against special tax breaks and road construction for the new Revel Casino.

A recent Quinnipiac poll finds Christie hugely popular, with 74 percent of voters approving of his job performance. Among Republicans, his job approval is at 93 percent. Democrats have endorsed state Sen. Barbara Buono in this year's election.
