Chris Christie Launches Presidential Campaign Website

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has his presidential campaign website up and running, "telling it like it is" a few days before making the official announcement.

He is expected to declare his bid for the White House on Tuesday in his hometown of Livingston, NJ — likely at his old high school where he served as class president for all four years.
Like other candidates, Christie took the digital route to promote his candidacy, announcing the site's launch in a series of tweets on Sunday saying, "Hey, America, it's Chris" and "Sitting on the sidelines is not an option."



Currently there are already 13 other Republicans who have jumped into the race, but being behind them in campaigning may be the least of his troubles.
