The "Politics & Eggs" series is a forum for presidential candidates and other political leaders as they visit New Hampshire. While it doesn't mean a candidate is necessarily exploring a run, it has hosted hundreds of potential presidential hopefuls over the years.

Christie's speech is the first "Politics & Eggs" talk of 2022 and the first one held in person since before the 2020 New Hampshire Primary. The last in-person guest was Bernie Sanders on Feb. 7, 2020.

Other potential Republican presidential contenders in 2024 include former President Donald Trump, his former Vice President Mike Pence, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and a host of others. Politico recently reported that several potential GOP candidates are already spending big money to build online fundraising machines.

In the run-up to the 2016 New Hampshire Primary, Christie made more stops in the state than any other candidate. He also received the endorsement of the New Hampshire Union Leader, but wound up finishing sixth behind Trump, John Kasich, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. Christie suspended his presidential campaign a day later.
