Monday, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie provided a keynote address to attendees at NAFCU’s 2022 Congressional Caucus. Christie focused his remarks on the state of politics in the United States ahead of the upcoming midterm elections, which will be held on November 8, 2022.

Introduced by NAFCU’s Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Greg Mesack, Christie honed in on his previous experience as Governor and his time in National politics over the years.

Following Sunday’s 21st anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, Christie opened his remarks discussing his own experience from that day and reminded attendees to never forget the importance of our Nation’s safety and security. Christie then moved on to discuss the current state of politics across the country, noting key races in the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the 36 of 50 governorships up for grabs in November.

The overarching theme of Christie’s commentary focused on the need to change the rhetoric of politicians in Washington and the Republican party’s potential to flip the House and Senate. In discussing his alignment with the Republican party, Christie noted, “Absent something crazy happening in the next 58 days, we’re not going to disrupt the House (changing)… it would seem hard for us to mess this up.”
