Chris Christie Officially Declares He’s Running for President

The Republican presidential field continues to swell, with Chris Christie making his formal announcement on Tuesday.

The New Jersey governor told a crowd of supporters in his hometown of Livingston, N.J., that he will run a campaign “without spin and without pandering,” and “not worry about what is popular but what is right,” The Hill reported.

During a 20-minute speech at his old high school, Christie pointed out that his qualifications include 13 years as attorney general and governor. He argued that being a GOP official in a state with a Democratic majority has taught him how to work with members of both parties.

“That fight has not made me more weary; it has made me stronger, and I am ready to fight for the people of the United States of America,” Christie said. “We have to do it together; we have no choice but to work together. This country has no choice but to work together again, not against each other.”
The governor criticized the Obama administration’s foreign policy, alleging that the president “lives in his own world, not in our world.” He added: “After seven years of a weak and feckless foreign policy … we better not turn it over to his second mate, Hillary Clinton.”
