New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told Dallas County Republicans at an event in West Des Moines, IA yesterday that he has grave concerns over Common Core.

“I have grave concerns about the way this has been done and especially the way the Obama administration has tried to implement it through tying it to federal funding… That changes the entire nature of it from what was initially supposed to be a voluntary type of system that states could decide on their own,” Christie said responding to an audience member’s question.

Christie’s comments is a sign of the direction that the Republican primary race is going to go. Polls in Iowa and in New Hampshire have demonstrated that former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s support of Common Core will be a drag on his prospective campaign.
