Born in Newark in 1962, Christie volunteered for the gubernatorial campaign of Republican Thomas Kean when he was 15.

A 1984 graduate of the University of Delaware, Christie earned a J.D. at Seton Hall University School of Law.

Christie joined a Cranford, New Jersey, law firm in 1987, rose to become a partner in 1993, and continued practicing until 2002.

He was elected county legislator in Morris County, serving from 1995 to 1998, during which time he generally pushed for lower taxes and lower spending.

By 2002, Christie had campaigned for Presidents George H.

W.

Bush and George W.

Bush; the latter appointed him as United States Attorney for New Jersey, a position he held from 2002 to 2008.

In that position, he emphasized prosecutions of political corruption and also obtained convictions for sexual slavery, arms trafficking, racketeering by gangs, and other federal crimes.

In January 2009, Christie declared his candidacy for Governor of New Jersey.
