Chris Christie vows to ‘follow’ and ‘confront’ Trump if he doesn’t attend debates: ‘I’ll find him’

HENNIKER, N.H. – For months former New Jersey Chris Christie has vowed to take down former President Donald Trump on the debate stage, but now he’s seeking another venue to “confront” the GOP frontrunner.

Christie has repeatedly touted that he’s got the debate chops to target Trump, who remains the commanding front-runner for the Republican nomination as he makes his third straight White House run, even as he’s juggling an historic four criminal indictments, including two for attempting to overturn his 2020 election loss to President Biden.

But with Trump not taking the stage in the initial GOP presidential nomination debate, Christie apparently is searching for an alternative way to make sure that the former president is not the Republican Party’s 2024 standard-bearer.

As he runs for the White House a second time, Christie is once again concentrating his efforts in New Hampshire, which holds the first primary and second overall contest in the GOP presidential nominating calendar.

Christie has seen his poll numbers edge up in New Hampshire this summer, but he and the rest of the field of contenders remain far behind Trump.
