The former governor of the state of New Jersey Chris Christie has presented this Tuesday the necessary documentation to be able to participate in the presidential elections of the United States in November 2024, where he will try to represent the Republican Party.
Christie previously ran in the Republican primaries in 2016, a time when he tried to establish himself as the main alternative to Donald Trump, who nevertheless won the Republican Party vote and, later, defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential ones
The former governor of New Jersey plans to officially launch his electoral campaign on Tuesday night (local time) in the state of New Hampshire, a key scene in the Republican primaries, according to information from the US news network ABC.
The list of candidates for the Republican Party primaries does nothing but grow, as Christie will join an electoral race in which prominent figures in the country have already confirmed their participation, such as former President Trump or Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, among others.
In addition, the one who was vice president during Trump’s term (2017-2021), Mike Pence, also presented the necessary documentation last Monday and plans to make his candidacy official next Wednesday at an event in Iowa, another of the key states of the Republican Party primaries.
On the Democratic side, the waters seem calmer, since for the moment the only prominent figure who has presented his candidacy for the primaries is the current president of the United States, Joe Biden, who despite his advanced age aspires to a possible re-election under the promise to “finish the job” started in 2021.
