Possible Republican presidential candidate and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie speaks at the University of New Hampshire at ManchesterBy Emily Stephenson and Luciana Lopez WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who is considering a bid for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, urged Congress on Monday to abandon its budget caps and boost defense spending. Speaking in New Hampshire, Christie urged more money to buy ships for the U.S. Navy and state-of-the-art planes for the Air Force.
