New Jersey governor Chris Christie is 5 feet, 11 inches tall. The Republican governor, born on Sept. 6, 1962, has garnered much national attention for his ability to work with legislators of both parties, causing his name to be mentioned for national office.
One major concern over Christie and a possible presidential run is the weight he carries on his just-under 6-feet frame. When he first came on the national scene, he appeared extremely overweight, and questions about his weight and potential health issues began to abound. Christie underwent a lap band procedure to help with weight loss in 2013, with some noticeable results. As of 2014, Governor Christie refuses to discuss actual numbers regarding his weight loss or how much more he hopes to lose.
