Guess who's stealing Kim Guadagno's AC spotlight today?

Today was supposed to be a big day for New Jersey Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno.
Now it won’t be.
Matt Friedman reports for Politico:
Guadagno was scheduled to deliver the keynote speech at the New Jersey State League of Municipalities Conference luncheon, as she has done most years during Gov. Chris Christie's administration. But this year was more highly anticipated, since Guadagno could take over as governor should Christie leave for a job in or around the incoming Donald Trump administration.
Now Christie, who hasn’t attended the conference since 2011 and was not scheduled to attend this year, is making a surprise visit to Atlantic City to deliver a speech.
“Gov. Christie's schedule has changed, so he will be delivering the Municipalities speech. The lieutenant governor will still be attending,” said Guadagno spokeswoman Suzanne Schwab.
 “She still will be going. And she intends to deliver her speech at another time and another place. She had one prepared, and that’s it … She’s more than happy to hand the podium over.”
Asked if the Christie administration had a problem with the speech Guadagno planned to deliver, Christie spokesman Brian Murray said the governor "was able to travel back to New Jersey earlier than expected" from a Republican Governors Association meeting in Florida, and that he is "happy that this change will now allow him to speak at the League of Municipalities tomorrow."
