On trip to Iowa, Chris Christie amazed to learn state holds presidential caucuses

16 Jul

DES MOINES—Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), travelling through Iowa because of his longstanding interest in agriculture, was “amazed” to learn that the state holds the first presidential caucuses every election season.

“That’s incredible,” said Christie, speaking to a group of Republican activists in Ames. “I just wanted to come out here on vacation.”

Christie went on to explain that he was visiting the state “mostly to see how corn is made,” but that if it made sense, “well, shoot, I guess I could talk to some voters as well, maybe do a little media.”

Christie has consistently said that he is focused on his job as governor of New Jersey and has not given any thought to mounting a presidential bid in 2016.

“My priority continues to be my constituents,” said Christie. “That’s why I’m fighting for New Jersey’s top interests, farm subsidies and ethanol.”
