Gov. Chris Christie, not yet an officially announced Republican candidate for the presidency in 2016, attended the Iowa Freedom Summit on Saturday, and reassured attendees that he was still conservative.
Then today the governor announced the formation of a political action committee designed at finding new leaders in the U.S.
Perhaps he sees himself as one of those choices. “The PAC’s goal to get real leadership back in our country starts today,” Christie said in his announcement, according to NorthJersey.com. “So, let’s get to work!”
The Iowa summit looks to be another reason Christie started the PAC. Iowa is the first stop in the 2016 campaign for president. "If I was too blunt, too direct, too loud and too New Jersey for Iowa, then why do you people keep inviting me back?" Christie told people on Saturday, according to The Huffington Post. "Being honest with the people you hope to represent about the feelings you hold deeply is never, ever a political liability, and I will never change doing it exactly that way."
