He and his running mate attorney Rick Merkt wanted to get a seat in the New Jersey General Assembly in 1995.

  1. Besides the glaring error about Christie’s obesity (which is obvious to everyone reading this piece), the author also says: “Since you can only be a governor for two runs in the United States of America…” which also is blatantly false. Credibility of the whole piece goes out the window.

  2. I have been watching him on TV and I really like the way he is honest about everything. Been thinking we need a strong person in charge of this country right now and he is the best I have seen or heard. And his weight doesn’t matter. His brain does.

    • Honest will get you no where in the republican party. You must be able to con, steal, lie and destroy lives I keep going back destroying companies by not paying money due. A trick Trump uses many times. Trump has avoided paying by bankrupting. I have lost count how many times that has happened. It was a disappointment to hear Christie dropped out of the race. If he had not been honest and supported Trump he would steel be in the race. He knows Trump and could not support him like others.

  3. I’m impressed with Christie. Never paid much attention to him till now, I’m a Democrat looking for an answer all our problems! Looking at both sides ~

  4. Chris Christie seems very down to earth and also brave in that he is not intimidated by Donald Trump or anyone else. I feel that for him to “step out of line” from the other Trump-fearing people is brave and admirable. People change their minds as they receive more information. I think Chris Christie is observant and brave to go against the unspoken agreement that most Republicans adhere to (which is to not condemn Donald Trump’s words, actions or clear history of self-serving decisions). Christie is a breath of fresh air and gives me hope for the future, hope for people to reject powermonger Donald Trump’s efforts to be the first dictator of the United States of America.

  5. Chris Chirstie changed my mind. For the First time last night during the debate, I was pleased to see a candidate bring a level of civility and respect to the debate and actually answer the questions. He not only was candid honest and forthright, he had the dignity to defend Niki Haley when she was maligned by her attacker. It demonstrated for me a level of sincerity and legitimacy that I’ve not seen until now. I’m fed up with politics in general, but did find Chris Christie’s honest and candid approach to speaking to the American people appealing and sensible. Of the group, he possesses the characteristics of a President that I see from none of the rest, including Donald Trump.
