Unlike some of the contenders in the sprawling field of 2016 Republican presidential candidates, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie requires little introduction.

He's been a national figure for several years, thanks to a pair of high-profile GOP gubernatorial wins in a blue state, a successful tenure as chairman of the Republican Governor's Association, and a candid (some would say combative) approach to retail politicking that has made him a one-man viral video factory.

But long before Christie launched himself into the national political conversation in 2009 by defeating a Democratic incumbent governor of New Jersey, he'd been making a name for himself as a tough-talking prosecutor and lawyer who'd been active in Republican politics for decades.
