The difference between Cuccinelli and Christie

This article lays out their differences quite well, and why one Republican lost while the other won. An excerpt:

"The difference is that Christie is genuinely conservative, not radical. He holds views more in line with traditionalists conservatives like Edmund Burke, Russell Kirk and Ronald Reagan. He pursues prudent change, seeks to solve problems, works to gain consensus support for his goals, is open to new information, and governs with an attitude of service to all of his constituents. Tea party candidates like Cuccinelli seek hasty and dramatic change, ignore problems that challenge their worldview, do not seek consensus, are closed minded, and tend to view the world through an 'us versus them' lens."
