Here's a little-known fact dug up by Hunter Walker, national affairs reporter at Talking Points Memo. Back when he was a bright-eyed college student at the University of Delaware, future New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was pleased to announce (if his photo is any indication) that a bridge was being kept ... wait for it ... open.

Walker posted a copy of an old newspaper article to his Twitter account, detailing how Christie, then president of the Delaware Undergraduate Student Congress, commented that a campus bridge's construction would not affect an upcoming graduation ceremony.
