The current governor of New Jersey Chris Christie, 53, was a rising GOP in 2012 when he delivered the keynote speech at the 2012 Republican National Convention, but the controversy over the closure of lanes on a bridge to New York in alleged political vendetta tarnished his reputation. His conservative credentials also came under fire after he was seen embracing President Obama after the Sandy superstorm. He dropped out of the GOP presidential race on February 10, 2016, a day after finishing 6th in the New Hampshire primary.
