New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie left little doubt that he is leaping into the packed Republican presidential fray, as the GOP contender's campaign website went live Saturday—three days before what is expected to be his formal announcement.
Via Twitter, Christie posted a link to the campaign's website using the hashtag "Telling it like it is", a nod to the governor's brash persona that has brought him both grudging praise and several high-profile confrontations.
More than a dozen Republicans have already declared their candidacy for the November 2016 election, while a number of others are still mulling whether to jump in. In an unofficial capacity, Christie has barnstormed early voting stalwarts like New Hampshire and Iowa, all but signaling he planned to be a contender.
Eected in 2009 as part of an early crop of anti-establishment candidates that originally enjoyed the early backing what became the Tea Party, the 52-year-old Christie has seen his support wane after a resounding victory for a 2nd term.
Christie's approval rating in New Jersey sits at just 30 percent, according to a recent poll by Farleigh Dickinson University's PublicMind.
