Chris Christie      

Political Commentator on ABC News; Former Governor of New Jersey

Chris Christie is a senior legal and political commentator for ABC News and managing member of Christie Law Firm and Christie 55 Solutions, both in Morristown, NJ.

Christie was governor of New Jersey from 2010 to 2018, during which time he was elected chairman of the Republican Governors Association and to the National Governors Association Executive Committee. He chaired the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis in 2017.

Previously, Christie was the US attorney for the District of New Jersey from 2002 to 2008. He was in private practice of law from 1987 to 2001, specializing in corporate law, securities matters, and appellate advocacy.

During his time in office, Governor Christie emphasized the issues of fiscal responsibility, pension and health benefit reform, education reform and the opioid crisis gripping his state and the nation. His March 2017 law restricting opioid prescriptions led to a 26% reduction in those prescriptions in its first year. He also devised the state’s groundbreaking response to Superstorm Sandy, leading the rebuilding of the state’s housing, infrastructure and public schools and setting a bi-partisan example for storm recovery.
