After capturing a whopping 1.8% of the vote during Monday’s Iowa Republican caucus, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has turned his attention to the future. At a campaign event in New Hampshire on Wednesday, Christie promised to “beat [Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton’s] rear end” if given the nomination and the chance to debate against her for the presidency.
“You know the last person she wants to see on that stage in September? You’re looking at him,” Christie said to a group of laughing New Hampshire citizens. “You know why? She’s been running away from federal prosecutors for the last six months. Man, she sees a federal prosecutor on the stage—I’ll beat her rear end on that stage, and you know what? After I do, she’ll be relieved because she’d just be worried I’d serve her with a subpoena.”
