NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will announce next week that he is running for president in 2016, CBS2 has confirmed.
Christie will make an official announcement Tuesday at his old high school, two people familiar with his plans told The Associated Press. Two sources also confirmed the information to CBS2’s Christine Sloan.READ MORE: Annual Juneteenth Festival In Bedford-Stuyvesant Takes On New Meaning In 2021
But Christie said during his monthly “Ask the Governor” radio program Thursday night that he has “absolutely” not made a final decision, and said there are “lots of people who speculate lots of things,” according to a CNN report.
Some New Jersey teachers feel the presidential run is a slap in the face, WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reported.
“I was a little surprised that he picked a high school, particularly a public high school, to make the announcement after he’s been basically attacking the high schools and the teachers since he started running for office,” said one teacher.
