From their first priority in the White House to favorite authors and evening drinks of choice, "CBS This Morning" is getting to know 2016 presidential candidates backstage.

After his interview with "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King, Christie filled out our questionnaire:

My first priority when I enter the White House will be... to help our children and grandchildren get a job and a career that will fulfill them

I believe the government's responsibility to its citizens is... to protect their safety and security

Before giving a campaign speech, I... take a deep breath and relax

My favorite author is...Harlan Coben

My morning drink of choice is... orange juice

My evening drink of choice is... water

On a regular night I get 5 hours of sleep.

If I could ask one other candidate one question... I'd ask Jeb Bush how he would fix our country's entitlement crisis
