New Jersey Gov.
Chris Christie (R) announced a presidential map on Thursday that will use existing maps of the United States that have been used by both parties to determine who gets to run for president.
“We’ve made a map that’s based on geography,” Christie told reporters at a news conference.
“It’s not based on partisan maps.
Christie, who was elected to a second term in 2016, has frequently spoken out against the influence of the media and has pledged to focus on economic development. “
What we want to do is give you a sense of who the candidates are, where they live, what their priorities are, and what their values are.”
Christie, who was elected to a second term in 2016, has frequently spoken out against the influence of the media and has pledged to focus on economic development.
He has also spoken out in support of a woman’s right to choose and has vowed to repeal the death penalty.
“This is not a partisan map.
This is a map based on geographic reality,” Christie said.
“There’s no partisan intent here.”
The maps will be made available to voters in the first half of 2020.
The maps also include several demographic and economic details, including the percentage of the population that lives in poverty and the number of people who live in counties with fewer than 100,000 people.
Christie said that he was inspired by previous maps of US presidential elections that have shown a Democratic-leaning candidate winning the presidency.
“I’ve had people say, ‘That’s the map they want,’ ” Christie said, adding that the new map would also include a number of states that have voted Democratic in recent elections, including Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Hawaii and Michigan.
Christie and his team are also looking at the 2016 election map, which he called a “bad map” that featured Trump winning the election.
“So I thought, how about a new map that looks like a map,” Christie added.
“And then, it’s a map for the people who want to know where the candidate is.”
He said that the current maps were outdated, and he was hoping to “rebuild a better map.”
Christie has been a staunch opponent of Donald Trump, but has said he will vote for the GOP nominee in November.
Christie has faced criticism for his stance on the death of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man who was killed by New York City police officers in 2015.
Garner died after a struggle with officers during an arrest for allegedly selling loose cigarettes.
Christie was one of a number who have voiced their support for the Democratic candidate in the wake of Garner’s death.
The state is currently under a court order to develop a comprehensive plan for implementing the death penalties, which will also include new rules for how the state handles capital cases.
Christie, however, has not publicly voiced support for any specific death penalty candidate.
“In fact, we have no candidate on the ballot for governor who has expressed support for capital punishment,” Christie’s press secretary, Jeff Jones, said.
Trump, meanwhile, has said that it is “unbelievable” that the death sentences for Garner and other black Americans could not be carried out.
