NEWARK, N.J. (AP) – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will announce Tuesday he is running for president in 2016.

That’s according to two people familiar with his plans. They say the formal announcement will be at Christie’s old high school.

The Republican governor has been laying the groundwork for months. Christie considered a bid in 2012 before deciding to pass on a campaign.

He joins a field of more than a dozen major candidates for the GOP nomination. Once considered an early front-runner, Christie has yet to build momentum in the early days of the race.

The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to pre-empt Christie’s formal announcement.
