Chris Christie Points to 2016 in RNC Speech

Republican Governor Chris Christie has a new message for his party: he's a winner. Speaking before a closed door meeting with the Republican National Committee, he rallied his base in a campaign style speech... and he had some pointed jabs for his potential 2016 rivals.

CNN Political Commentator and Republican Strategist Ana Navarro breaks it down on "New Day:"

"It is the epitome of Chris Christie. It is Chris Christie unvarnished, it's what you expect from Chris Christie. Don't invite the guy over for lunch if you want some sugar-coated speech, in subtle tones where you're going to have to figure out and interpret the modern art. The guy will tell you exactly what he's thinking, and what he's saying is 'look, I am growing the party.'" (WATCH TOP VIDEO)
