New Jersey Governor Chris Christie arrives on Downing Street for a meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron. Mana Rabiee reports.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie arrived on Downing Street on Monday for a meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron. The brash and charismatic second-term governor is expected to soon announce whether he intends to run for president. Media reports say Christie was inside Cameron's office for 45 minutes but no other details were given about the meeting. The UK is New Jersey's third-largest trading partner after Canada and Mexico - and Christie is there to promote his state's life sciences industry. He went to an English soccer match on Sunday and called for progress on a proposed trade agreement between the United States and the European Union -- a trade pact that U.S. President Barack Obama has been advocating. Christie said the White House needs an effective negotiator to facilitate trade agreements - in comments that looked like a nod towards his presidential ambitions. The 52-year-old formed a political action committee in January ahead of a potential bid for president in 2016.
