Chris Christie On Possible 2024 WH Bid: “Why Not?”

The Week reports:

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, in yet another interview to promote his new book, was asked by radio host Hugh Hewitt whether running for president in 2024 is on the table, per CNN’s Betsy Klein. Christie’s response? “Yeah, listen, why not?”

Christie went on to explain that he would not run simply “to go through the exercise” but that if he “saw a pathway to victory and a way to make a difference, I would certainly consider it.” The former governor previously ran for president in 2016 after considering a run in 2012.

He made it to the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary, dropping out after coming in sixth place with less than seven percent of the vote, per NPR. Christie subsequently endorsed then-candidate Donald Trump and led his transition team for a few months.
