Christie, who was unsuccessful for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, argued that if Republicans stop looking back and instead look forward, the party will win the party back House of Representatives and Senate in 2022 and paving the way for 2024.
“We need to win in 2022 before we consider 2024,” Christie stressed on Sunday, adding that “more importantly” Republicans must give Americans a “positive view of what we want to do compared to the disaster that is the Biden.” ” administration.”
Christie also argued that “contrast with” Joe Biden and Kamala Harrisand “explaining what’s wrong with what they’re doing and what’s right with our recipe” will see the GOP win back the House and Senate and many governors in 2022. He went on to say it will also put the party in “a great position for 2024.”
The former governor said he will consider running for the Republican presidential nomination for 2024 but “will not make a decision until 2022”.
Speak with Fox News earlier this monthChristie urged his party not to look back at the former president Donald Trumpthe 2020 election defeat and instead “go ahead and talk about issues voters care about”.
Christie has been active this cycle thus far in helping fellow Republicans run for office or run for reelection. He serves as co-national chairman – together with former secretary of state Mike Pompeo — from the National Republican Redistricting Trust, the GOP’s main organization coordinating the party’s reclassification strategy and building resources for its legal defense.
He is also co-chair of the Republican Governors Association Victory Committee, “raising money for Republican governors and Republican governor candidates and traveling across the country to do just that.”
“If we don’t win, the democrats continue to rule and they will continue to swing our country to the left and give government gifts that we will probably never be able to take away in the future and change this country forever,” Christie said on Sunday. “It’s not what I want to see happen and I don’t think that this is what most people in this country want to see happen.”
Christie criticized President Biden’s actions on Sunday, saying the president and the current administration have “miserably” failed to deliver on their campaign promise to unite the country.
“What everyone in America has seen in the last ten months is that he’s just not up to the job and his government is not up to the job,” he said.
Christie also argued that Biden had gone “far left” with all his policies and has “succumbed” to radicals.
Five years ago, the then-Governor of New Jersey’s presidential run collapsed and burned out after a disappointing and distant sixth-place finish in the New Hampshire presidential primaries, where Christie had placed all of his chips. Christie quickly backed Trump, who crushed the rest of the field in New Hampshire, launching him to the Republican presidential nomination and eventually the White House.
Now, nearly 10 months away from the presidency, Trump continues to flirt with another White House run in 2024. Christie is one of the few other Republicans considering a GOP nomination round who feels comfortable discussing it publicly.
“I’ve already run, I’m not going to run for the experience. I’ve had the experience. When I run, I run because I think I can win and I think I can make a difference,” Christie told Fox News earlier this month.
He went on to say he’s in no rush to make a decision because “the people of New Hampshire, the people of Iowa, and most people in the country know me, so I don’t have to go through the induction process. So I’ll take my time, I’ll think it over.”
Christie said he can envision a scenario where Trump doesn’t participate in 2024, depending on “what happens in Donald Trump’s life in the next few years and what he decides he wants to do,” adding that he “may see him too.” run”.
Christie praised Trump’s policies as “excellent” but advised that if he re-enters the race, he should look ahead rather than keep complaining about the outcome of the 2020 election.
“Talking about it now is a defeat for the Republican Party,” warned Christie
Voters always want the next election to be about the future, not the past, and there’s plenty to talk about right now with Joe Biden’s horrific failures in crime, education, taxes and spending. Afghanistan, other foreign policy issues such as: China and we should talk about those things and write out our prescriptions,” he said.
