( – On Tuesday, former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie (Republican) filed paperwork to place a bid on the White House. Christie had previously faced former President Donald Trump in the Republican primary in 2016 and he is now going to be facing him again in 2024.

The 2024 Republican field has been growing in recent months with Florida Governor DeSantis, Senator Tim Scott (South Carolina), former United Nations Ambassador to the United States Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Governor Hutchinson, and Ramaswamy all having launched presidential campaigns within the last year.

Former VP Mike Pence also recently joined the race officially on Wednesday, as he filed the paperwork earlier this week. Other possible presidential nominees included North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum and New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu, however the latter officially announced that he would not be running for the White House earlier this week.

Christie had not found great success during his first presidential run, with his campaign ending after the New Hampshire primary in February where he placed sixth. Still, in an interview with Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade in March, he had stated that his decision on whether or not he would join the presidential race would come within 60 days.

One of the main advantages that Christie will have in the primary race is that he has run against Trump before, as well as worked with him in 2020 as a debate prep aide. This could potentially mean that he has a greater understanding of what the former president’s weaknesses are and how to exploit them on the debate stage.
