Is Donald Trump about to see one of his most aggressive critics join the Republican primary circle?

Reports indicate former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has taken a significant step towards announcing his 2024 White House campaign after his allies established a political action committee (PAC) to support his bid.

The PAC, called Tell It Like It Is, is the latest sign that Christie plans to throw his hat in the ring in the Republican presidential primary race, the New York Times initially reported.

Fox News reports:

The former governor has already made selections for a potential presidential campaign staff as well, according to the New York Times. Mike DuHaime and Maria Comella are poised to manage his campaign if he announces, the outlet reported. Duhaime previously worked as a political strategist during Christie’s 2016 campaign, and Comella previously worked as chief of staff to disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Meanwhile Brian Jones, a longtime staffer for GOP campaigns, will head up the PAC.

Earlier this month, Christie indicated he planned to jump into the race by hitting at both frontrunners Trump and President Biden.

“I’m very concerned that what we’re heading toward is a Trump-Biden rematch,” said in a radio interview. “A Trump-Biden rematch is bad for the Republican Party.”

“We lost the House in 2018. The Senate and the White House in 2020. We underperformed in 2022 and lost more governorships and another Senate seat. Donald Trump cannot win,” he continued.

Christie would enter a growing field of Republican 2024 candidates, including Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis; former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley; Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson.

Former Vice President Mike Pence is also expected to launch a bid for the White House in the coming weeks.

  1. What a joke! – not one can come close to the ability of Trump to bring Peace to the world. Is that why the push so hard against him? War means $$$ but this time not for America so are these candidates really Rinos that work to destroy our nation? They have 0 to offer as our president. We know prosperity will come back with Trump !

    • Agree….now we just have to get Trump elected….which isn’t going to be easy with all the fraud involved in the elections and the justice system so corrupt….plus Rhinos in the midst.

  2. Christie is a joke. The candidates
    that have no real chance of winning suck up the campaign
    money and then bow out with their pockets bulging

  3. Agree….now we just have to get Trump elected….which isn’t going to be easy with all the fraud involved in the elections and the justice system so corrupt….plus Rhinos in the midst.
