Previous New Jersey Governor Chris Christiea Republican, said President Biden on top of the 2024 Democratic ticket would be “best” for the GOP.
Christie made his prediction that Biden would run for re-election in 2024 on Tuesday’s new episode of the Ruthless podcast, basing his thoughts on the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) plan to host the party’s next meeting in Philadelphia next February.
“You know what my big indicator is that he’s going to run? And I always thought he wouldn’t,” Christie said. “Until the midterms, I thought he wouldn’t apply again.”

“But I read in the last two weeks that the next meeting of the Democratic National Committee is at the end of January, beginning of February, in Philadelphia,” said the Garden State Republican continued“He’s running, and I guess he’ll announce it right there.”
“That’s my guess. Philly, because of course everyone wants to go to Philly in February, right? It’s really cool, it’s a great idea, what about Buffalo? Why not?” Christie joked.
Christie said the White House probably made the pick for the February Democratic National Committee meeting in Philadelphia, and that he reads “those tea leaves to say that Joe Biden will run, if something really bad doesn’t happen to him, that He’s going to perform in Philadelphia in February and he’s going to run for president.”
“And I think it’s going to be the best thing that could have happened to our party. The best thing,” Christie said. “Because I don’t know who his candidate would be if it wasn’t him, but let’s take it. I’ll take it. I’ll sign up for it right now.”
“I am signing up for debate number one, on September 29, 2024, to stand on stage in front of Joe Biden. Sign me up,” Christie said.
The former governor said he would “decide this spring” whether to run for president in this round.
Christie’s name has been raised as a possible Republican challenger for the presidency in 2024 as DC’s speculative machine gears up for the upcoming election.
