Chris Christie explores the waters in New Hampshire and seeks a 'pathway to winning'

March 27, 2023

Chris Christie, the former Republican governor of New Jersey, will go to New Hampshire on Monday in pursuit of a "pathway to winning."

Christie has long hinted that he is considering running for president in 2024 and said that he will make a decision within the "next 60 days."

This will be his first public appearance in New Hampshire this year and will take place at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics in the format of a town hall meeting, according to a report by The Washington Examiner.

Christ Christie On Trump, 'I'm Tired of Losing'

Christie told Fox News, "There's no question that if you discover that you're connecting with folks, you're more motivated to get out there and attempt to engage in the struggle.

"I believe the most essential thing is to put yourself out there, be genuine, and observe how others respond to that."

Finding a road to win, determining whether he feels he has something to give, and receiving the support of his family are his three requirements for running. Christie emphasized that he and his wife "had not yet made a choice."

"If I respond affirmatively to all three questions, I will run. If I respond no to any of the questions, I will not, "Christie continued.

During the 2012 election season, Christie was viewed as a rising star within the Republican Party, even surpassing former President Barack Obama in some polls.

During His Last Run

He finally chose not to compete and waited until 2016, when he hedged his bets on New Hampshire but ended a distant sixth before withdrawing from the race.

Since then, Christie has maintained a public profile, commenting on contemporary topics from his ABC commentary perch. Christie, who was one of the first 2016 GOP primary candidates to endorse Donald Trump, has now become a critic of the former president.

At this time, he believes that communicating with voters is more vital than "war chests and name recognition."

"These types of matters are essentially unimportant at this point. What is more important is how you connect with them and what you say. If your argument connects with them, they will go in your direction "Christie remarked.

Now, Trump and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), who has regularly led in the polls, dominate the 2024 Republican primary.

Trump, Nikki Haley, and Vivek Ramaswamy are the three major announced contenders as of this moment. In the following weeks, a slew of potential candidates for the presidential election of 2024 are anticipated to decide whether or not to conduct a campaign.
