Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie Enters 2024 GOP Race

Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey who has positioned himself as the only Republican capable of unseating former President Donald Trump, would declare for the 2024 presidential election the next week.

He will publicly announce his entry into the race on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, as had been anticipated. Axios broke the news first, and CNN later corroborated it.

In addition to former UN ambassador Nikki Haley and former governor of Arkansas Asa Hutchinson, Republican presidential hopefuls Ron DeSantis of Florida, Rep. Tim Scott of South Carolina, and Nikki Haley have all recently entered the race. Mike Pence, a former vice president, is another serious candidate but has not yet declared. Trump, the former president, is also present, of course.

The former governor of New Jersey criticized Trump in an effort to distinguish himself from the other candidates. He compared the former president to Lord Voldemort, the evil character from the Harry Potter novel, whose name is rarely spoken out of fear, and has blasted other Republican rivals for avoiding any Trump criticism.

Christie supported Trump in 2016 and 2020, but on election night in 2020, the former president drove Christie to distraction by falsely alleging that the election was rigged.

At that moment, Christie declared, “It’s over when you put yourself ahead of our democracy as president of the United States.”

Gains Some Republican Support for the 2024 Campaign

Since then, Christie has made it a habit to criticize Trump in interviews and on social media. Most recently, Christie called Trump’s “bravado” over his indictment in a New York hush money case “baloney” and dubbed him “Putin’s Puppet” after the former president said he could end Russia’s war in Ukraine in less than 24 hours at a CNN town hall.

Christie abandoned his 2016 presidential campaign after finishing sixth in the New Hampshire primary. Christie made the case during that campaign that governors make better presidents than businesspeople like Trump or senators like then-candidates Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, drawing on his experience as a federal prosecutor and governor.

Christie begins the campaign considerably behind other contenders in the polls, receiving less than 3% of Republican voters’ support in any national survey conducted thus far. Despite this, a few well-known Republicans have already said they’ll support his campaign.

Anthony Scaramucci, the founder of the hedge fund, told Semafor he would support Christie in the GOP primary, and he anticipates billionaire Steve Cohen will as well.
