Chris Christie Net Worth

Chris Christie

Chris Christie is an American politician with an estimated net worth of $4 million. Born on September 6, 1962 to Wilbur and Sondra Christie in Newark, New Jersey, he is a New Jersey boy through and through. His father was an accountant and his mother was home to care for him throughout this childhood. From an early age, Chris Christie was active in politics, serving as his class president and playing for the baseball team. He was an athlete, his family was very into politics and it was his mother who is credited for causing him to turn form a Democrat to a Republican. It’s been said that his parents were split on their political decisions and that they were on both sides of fence.

When he attended college at the University of Delaware, Chris Christie graduated with a degree in political science, knowing he wanted to spend some part of his life working in politics. He decided to follow up that degree with a degree in law at Seton Hall University School of Law. He also has two honorary doctorates issued to him by both Monmouth University as well as Rutgers University. His wife, Mary Pat Foster is an investment banker and he was an attorney before he became a politician. His political career began officially when he was appointed the U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey by President George W. Bush in 2001.

It was a bold choice by the former president as Chris Christie had never actually practiced law in a federal courtroom before, nor had he handled any criminal law in his short tenure. He also served as the Chief Federal Law Enforcement Officer in New Jersey from 2002 until 2008, as well as a member of the Advisory Committee of U.S. Attorneys.

By 2009, Chris Christie was ready to take his political career to the next level. He was able to run for Governor of New Jersey in 2009. He announced his candidacy on January 8 of that year and he was the winner of the republican primary with more than half the votes required for the nomination given to him. He then went on to win the majority vote on November 3 the same year and was appointed to office as the Governor of the State of New Jersey on January 19, 2010. However, he chose not to vacate his home and take his family with and they do not live in the Governor’s mansion as a result.

As his job entails, he’s spent the past 6 years in office as Governor attempting to make New Jersey a better place. He has enacted a number of helpful laws, and he has changed some things for the better. He has some supporters and he has some people who would rather not see him in office again, but he is a hardcore politician. Most of his net worth comes from his days serving as an attorney and his wife’s career as an investment banker. They have four kids, and they have an estimated net worth of $4 million.
