Controversial Governor Considering 2024 Presidential Run On GOP Ticket
On Monday, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a pseudo-Republican, came out swinging at President Trump. He said he has ‘fundamental disagreement’ with Trump over president’s attempts to reverse election results.
Evidently, he thinks he can do a better job. Christie added that he wouldn’t rule out another presidential bid even if his longtime friend President Trump launches a 2024 run to try to return to the White House.
Christie – who ran unsuccessfully for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination before suspending his campaign and endorsing Trump – was asked Monday during a radio interview with conservative host Hugh Hewitt if he’d rule out a run of his own if Trump, who’s already flirting with another White House bid, decides to launch a 2024 campaign.
“I would not. No,” Christie said. “I would not rule it out, Hugh.”
This isn’t the first time that Christie has publicly mulled another White House run of his own.
“I certainly wouldn’t foreclose any possibility. Would I consider running? Sure, absolutely,” the former two-term governor said in July during an interview with the Washington Post.
Asked by Hewitt if he already has a Chris Christie 2024 web domain reserved, the former governor noted that he has ownership of ChrisChristie.com. “So we’re going to keep that one, and we’ll see where we go from here, Christie added.
