2024 Heating Up

HERE COMES CHRISTIE! Former NJ Gov Files Paperwork with FEC, Will Run in 2024

It’s official —Chris Christie is running for president.

According to a Fox News report, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is throwing his hat into the ring for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024.

Christie used to be a strong ally to frontrunner Donald Trump —now he’s one of his biggest critics.

The former Garden State Gov. previously ran in 2016 but ultimately fell to Trump.

From Fox News:

Christie became the first among the other GOP 2016 contenders to endorse Trump, and for years was a top outside adviser to the then-president and chaired Trump’s high-profile commission on opioids. However, the two had a falling out after Trump’s unsuccessful attempts to overturn his 2020 election loss to President Biden. In the past two years, Christie has become one of the most vocal Trump critics in the GOP.

Christie has been publicly mulling a 2024 presidential run for over a year and a half, and recently has repeatedly chimed in on his dissatisfaction with the state of the race. He’s expressed discontent with the Republican field, accusing candidates of not being willing to take on the front-runner directly.

Christie, known during his tenure for the kind of in-your-face politics that Trump has also mastered, has argued that he’s got the debate chops to potentially take down Trump should he face off with the former president.

“I know what I’m good at. I know how to articulate an argument. I know how to make it. I know how to land it. And I feel like I have the ideas that people are genuinely attracted to. So if you have those things, you have a good chance to be able to do it. No guarantees, but a good chance,” Christie told Fox News Digital during an April stop in New Hampshire.

Christie joins former Vice President Mike Pence, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, South Carlina Senator Tim Scott, businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, talk radio host Larry Elder, and more in the race to catch GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
