Chris Christie

Christie may have claimed on Thursday that he was not sure about running for the 2016 presidential elections but his video released on Sunday told otherwise. He had also sent invitations to supporters over the weekend, CNN has learned. The invitation was for a presidential launch that will be held on Tuesday, CNN reported.

On Sunday, Christie released a video where he was shown talking to voters about his Sicilian mother. The video ends with “Christie 2016” with the slogan “Telling It Like It is.”
