Axios-Fmr. NJ Gov. Christie To Announce GOP Presidential Run Next Week


Axios reportingthat former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is set to announce his intention to run for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination next week. Axios: "Christie, 60, is a former close Trump ally who now calls the former president a "coward" and "puppet of Putin." He gives traditional Republicans a horse — but seems to have a narrow market in today's GOP. [...] Christie is expected to make the announcement at a town hall at Saint Anselm College at 6:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday."

  • Data from Smarkets shows political bettors give Christie almost zero prospect of winning the Republican nomination, with a 0.7% implied probability of victory.
