And then there were 14.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is expected to formally declare his candidacy for the Republican nomination on Tuesday, June 30.
The announcement will take place at Livingston High School, where Christie graduated in 1980. Christie served as class president during his high school years.
Christie is the 14th Republican to enter the 2016 field.
UPDATE: CNN reports that Christie hasn't made a decision to enter the race:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie refuted reports that he has made the decision to run for president during a radio interview on Thursday night.
"There's been absolutely no final decision made by me," he said during his monthly "Ask the Governor" radio appearance on NJ101.5. "There's lots of people who speculate lots of things, and I can't be held to account for every bit of speculation that's in the press."
