    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Tuesday described the FBI’s invasion of former President Trump’s personal safe, as part of its unprecedented raid of Mar-A-Lago, as “fair game,” making the remarks during an appearance on Sirius XM’s Julie Mason Mornings. Christie began by speaking from his own experience as U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey, explaining that moving to proceed with a search warrant against a sitting or former public official is one of the “most grave type of decisions.

    Former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that he believes it was “unlikely” former President Donald Trump will be prosecuted for his role in the events surrounding the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Anchor George Stephanopoulos said, “Let’s start with the January 6 committee. You’re a former prosecutor. You talked about the difficulties in prosecuting the former president, what was the committee was trying to do this week is demonstrate clearly that President Trump knew or at best should have known what he was doing was wrong, was not legal.”

    Republican Rep. Tom Rice lost his solidly conservative South Carolina House seat Tuesday after nearly a decade in Congress, which included his vote to impeach former President Donald Trump over the Jan. 6 riots. SOUTH CAROLINA PROVIDES NEXT TEST OF TRUMP'S ENDORSEMENT POWER Although Rice repeated his support for many Trump policies as he campaigned across South Carolina's 7th Congressional District, from Myrtle Beach to the Pee Dee region, he defended his decision to impeach Trump as "the principled stance." "My opinion is that our Constitution is too precious to risk," he said during the district's five-way Republican debate. Trump...
  • Chris Christie says he doesn’t know Ron DeSantis well enough to attack him

    Florida Politics ^ | 6/14/2022 | A.G. Gancarski
    Long before they called Ron DeSantis “America’s Governor,” New Jersey’s Chris Christie cut a singular figure of his own. Christie, currently out of elected office, has not ruled out a run in 2024, a play that could put him on a collision course with DeSantis if both men run. Christie already derailed one Floridian’s presidential hopes, with a bruising takedown of Sen. Marco Rubio during the Primary debates of 2016. On the edition of the Ruthless Podcast released Tuesday, Christie suggested devising a strategy for dispatching DeSantis may be a bit tougher than handling Rubio was. “It’s going to take...

    While former President Donald Trump went all-in for ex-Sen. David Perdue in the recent Georgia Republican gubernatorial primary, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie backed incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp. Kemp, who was elected in 2018 on a conservative platform and with the then-blessing of Trump, fought vigorously to win renomination as his party's nominee as he sought reelection to a second term — brushing aside complaints from Trump that the governor didn't help him enough during the 2020 election. The governor, who has spent nearly four years signing conservative pieces of legislation into law, won the Tuesday GOP primary in...

    CANTON — Gov. Brian Kemp told voters in Canton Tuesday that “we are in a fight for the soul of our state.” Kemp visited voters at Reformation Brewery in Canton Tuesday to meet and discuss some of his priorities as part of his statewide bus tour stop to meet and talk with voters ahead of the May 24 primary. The governor touted his decision to reopen the state “before anyone else did” during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Chris Christie doubts the leaked tapes of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy telling GOP colleagues he'd urge former President Donald Trump to resign after the Capitol riot will sway voters. The former New Jersey governor got into an argument with ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl on Sunday about the particulars of the audio, revealed by a pair of New York Times reporters, and what it means for McCarthy and the GOP outside the nation's capital.

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said on Sunday that former President Trump’s recent endorsements have all been “emotional decisions” not based on “political analysis.” During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Christie pointed to Trump’s recent endorsement of GOP Senate candidate J.D. Vance in Ohio.

    Following a tour of Conway Medical Center’s flagship hospital on Thursday, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie stood side-by-side with U.S. Rep. Tom Rice and said the congressman had earned his support, friendship and endorsement. “Congressman Rice has an extraordinary conservative record that Republicans all over the country should be proud of,” Christie told reporters. The former Republican governor of a reliably blue state praised Rice for helping to create jobs in Horry County and across South Carolina’s 7th congressional district. Christie said such work has “been incredibly helpful to lift people out of poverty and give their families a...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Sunday said former President Trump’s endorsements in the upcoming midterm elections will not be “determinative.” Asked by anchor George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” what role Trump’s endorsements will play in November’s midterm races, Christie said they will “always be a factor” because of the ex-president’s influence in the Republican Party, but argued that they will not always determine the outcomes.

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said on Sunday that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) “wanted to be kicked out” of GOP House leadership amid fallout over her stance on former President Trump and the Jan. 6 insurrection. “Look, my view has always been that Liz Cheney wanted to be kicked out,” Christie said on ABC’s “This Week.” “Remember, the first time that she made the statement she made, she was reelected to her leadership position.”

Christie urged Democrats to follow Obama's advice, listing "runaway inflation," "critical race theory," and a "porous border" as parts of the left's story that need to be mentioned.

    At the time, Mowers was working on then-New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s presidential campaign. Mowers later served as a senior adviser to Trump before moving to the State Department. As the statute of limitations has passed, there is little chance Mowers could face prosecution over the potential violation. Still, legal experts say his actions could violate federal law. “What he has done is cast a vote in two different states for the election of a president, which on the face of it, looks like he’s violated federal law,” David Schlutz, professor at the University of Minnesota Law School, told the...

At the Politics & Eggs event at St. Anselm College, Christie issued a warning to any other Republicans contemplating a run for president in 2024.

    GOFFSTOWN, N.H. – Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie heavily criticized Donald Trump’s praise last month of Vladimir Putin when the former president called the Russian leader a "genius" and "savvy" in launching the deadly invasion of neighboring Ukraine. In a speech in New Hampshire on Monday, Christie asked "do we want to send admiring words to someone [Putin] who as we speak this morning is directing the slaughter of women and children in the Ukraine without any conscience?"

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took a swipe at former President Donald Trump on Monday for calling Russian President Vladamir Putin a “genius” as troops prepared to invade Ukraine. The jab is the latest sign of friction between the two longtime friends and fellow Republicans that began after Christie criticized Trump over the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection. Both men are possible 2024 White House contenders.

    With the Republican control of Congress in the palm of their hands as a red wave sweeps across America, New Jersey Republicans are positioning themselves in a rather strange spot, in the crosshairs of former President Donald J. Trump. The anti-Trump sentiment is growing among the GOP establishment, who let’s face it, went all-in on people like Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and John Kasich in the 2016 primary. It’s no secret to everyday Republicans living in New Jersey. The establishment Republican Party in New Jersey is fifty shades of purple with blue highlights. As the popular internet meme goes, this...
