Gov. Chris Christie tells Horry County residents why they should vote for him

Republican presidential candidate and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told a room of about 100 people in Myrtle Beach that their vote in February is one of the most important ones to be cast in primary.

“Your job in South Carolina is even more important than it has been in the past few cycles,” Christie said during a campaign stop at Sea Captain’s House Tuesday morning of the first-in-the-South primary next February. “You’re going to be the Goldilocks. Four years ago [the Republican primary] was too cold. Four years later you’re saying it’s too hot. You have to find someone who’s at the right temperature for you.

“You need to decide in your mind and in your heart who you think should be the next president of the United States and then work hard in your state to make it happen,” he said.
