Christie declines to rule out 2024 presidential bid

By Nikita Biryukov, December 21 2020 11:27 am

Former Gov. Chris Christie isn’t ready to put his presidential hopes to rest.

He declined to rule out another run for the highest office in the country on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show Monday.

“I would not rule it out,” Christie said when asked if he would rule out running for the presidency in 2024 if outgoing President Donald Trump chose to seek another term in 2024.

Christie’s 2016 presidential bid helped erode his already faltering approval ratings in New Jersey towards the end of his second term as the head of the Garden State. He considered a bid in 2012 but chose not to pursue it.

The former governor has remained active in politics since leaving state office, including as an advisor to Trump.
