On Wednesday (March 15), former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie revealed that he would be making a decision about whether he would launch a Presidential campaign in 45 days to 60 days.
Christie made his remarks to The Washington Examiner, noting that “running for President is an intensely personal decision,”
The former New Jersey Governor noted that the same consideration should be afforded to other potential candidates “to make on their own regardless of anybody else’s thoughts on it.”
Christie, who in 2016 ran for the GOP’s Presidential nomination, added that he believed the Republican Party would experience a “robust primary,” considering the party’s losses in the last four years.
The former New Jersey Governor also explained his belief that former President Donald Trump is “weaker” now than he had been in the 2020 Presidential election.
Christie explained that if Trump were on the GOP’s ticket in 2024, President Joe Biden would certainly remain in the Oval Office for another four years, adding, “that to me is not acceptable for this country.”.
Christie is also scheduled to speak at an event in New Hampshire later in the month, making the former Governor the latest Republican to travel to an early primary state, as speculation grows about who will join Trump and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley as big names on the GOP Presidential nominee ticket.
Former Vice President Mike Pence and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis have also traveled to early primary states like South Carolina, Iowa, and New Hampshire.
