Christie woos Iowa voters at saloon
Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie has been polling in the single digits, but that isn’t stopping his campaign.
The New Jersey governor is holding a series of town hall meetings in Iowa, ahead of Monday’s closely-watched caucus.
At the Chrome Horse Saloon in Cedar Rapids, he said the venue gave him a leg up with voters.
(SOUNDBITE)(ENGLISH) CHRIS CHRISTIE, SAYING:
“I’ll have 8 different town hall meetings in two days and not everyone of them is in a place like this. When you see me in a place like this, within 20-25 minutes, I become smarter and more charming, and better looking, I’m telling you….”
Christie will need the help — polls show him lagging far behind Republican rivals Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz.
