The 29th of September found my family and me pulling into the headquarters of Summit Agricultural Group located in Alden, Iowa! We were directed by the organized Republican team to exactly where we were supposed to park, and soon we found ourselves some seats. Shortly after 5:30, the 53 year old governor of New Jersey was welcomed to the room and he began his speech. The event was held in a spacious work shop like building, which contained a John Deere combine! Christie impressed upon us his honesty—he said that we have the right to know everything about whoever we elect as our president. It would be the only way we could be sure we could trust him.
Mr. Christie told about his record as governor. He helped pull his state through the disaster of Hurricane Sandy, and he said that if our country was to have a disaster in the future we would need someone like him to pull the country through. Governor Christie addressed the immigration problem also. He explained the impracticality of building a wall across the whole length of the Mexican border. He proposed instead, that we should only guard the places on the border which seem to pose a security risk. His speech was brief and he gave the audience a generous amount of time for a question and answer session.
Christie is for a strong military defense, and also for ensuring that America remains the home of innovation in the world.
Mr. Christie made his speech quite interesting by telling a lot of stories—something I always like. Afterward the governor and his wife, Mary Pat, made time to speak with everyone. They seemed like very nice people.
