Chris Christie to Announce 2016 Presidential Bid

New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie is in the final stages of preparing for his 2016 presidential bid,. According to sources close to the governor, a formal announcement is possible as soon as next week. The governor’s planning has intensified in recent days. On Monday, his campaign-in-waiting announced that he’d hired two additional staffers in New Hampshire, a state seen as critical to his White House hopes. Earlier this month, Christie dropped another hint that he was nearing a run. While campaigning in New Hampshire, the governor said that his family — one of the last major hurdles to his entering the race — was on board. “This is about me now,” he said.
