On Tuesday morning, NJ Governor Chris Christie joined the 2016 Presidential race. There are now 14 Republicans and just a handful of Democrats going full force ahead on the campaign trail. Christie spoke for about 30 minutes with no teleprompter to a crowd of supporters in Livingston, New Jersey.

The NJ Governor added, “Only in America could all of you believe that your voices and your efforts could make a difference to change a country as big, and vast, and powerful as this one. Only in America have we seen the truth of the words that one person can make a difference.”

He added towards the end of his speech, “I don’t seek the presidence for any other reason but because I believe in my heart that I am ready to work with you to restore America…”
