Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie criticized RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel on Sunday for her comments suggesting that abortion is not solely a state issue. During an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Christie pushed back on McDaniel’s statement, asserting that each state should have the right to make its own decision on the matter.
Christie, who has previously stated that abortion should be left to the states, emphasized the importance of allowing the American people to decide on this issue. He highlighted McDaniel’s lack of experience in governance and suggested that she does not understand the complexities and challenges involved in making such decisions.
During the interview, Christie also avoided answering whether he would support a federal ban on abortion at six weeks. He maintained that the decision should be left to the states and dismissed the question as “ridiculous.” Christie explained that as the governor of New Jersey, no abortion ban would have come to his desk due to the Democratic-controlled Legislature.
When pressed further on whether he would endorse a six-week ban, Christie declined to answer directly. He reiterated his belief that each state should have the autonomy to determine its stance on abortion and emphasized his record as a pro-life governor.
