Christie Heads to New Hampshire After Announcing Candidacy

Gov. Chris Christie will spend the next four days in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire. He’s already arrived at his first official campaign stop to hold his ninth town hall in the Granite State. NJTV News Correspondent David Cruz is in Sandown, N.H. to cover the event.

As Christie arrived for the town hall, he spoke briefly with Cruz about how it feels a bit different being an official presidential candidate. “There’s no turning back now, David,” Christie said.

The governor also said he’s all in in New Hampshire. “Mary Pat and I are here until the Fourth of July. So I’d say that’s all in for sure,” Christie said.

Cruz spoke with people in New Hampshire earlier in the day, saying those attending the town hall were a mix of the uncommitted and the curious. “We talked to some folks who said they have seen Chris Christie before but have wanted to really get a closer look and maybe talk to him and see if he is the man that they think he is,” Cruz said.
