Case Study: Chris Christie
Governor of NJ, 2016 Presidential Candidate
In winter of 2009, Christie announced he would be running for candidacy, hoping to fulfill the role as governor of New Jersey. After winning the Republican primary he went on to surpass the incumbent governor (Jon Corzine). After serving one term Christie felt he should continue on his legacy and ran and won a second term in office. His presidential trek began to rise when he was seen as a potential candidate during the 2012 election, although not yet running, he was a keynote speaker at the 2012 National Republican Convention. Chris Christie has declared his running for the 2016 Presidential election, seeking the Republican nomination.
