|Gov. Chris Christie on his first visit to Hoboken as NJ Governor|
announcing a 2.5% tax cap plan. He's announced he's running for President.
He joins a core of current US state governors and senators, 14 in all vying for the top prize.
On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton, the controversial former US Secretary of State who received tens of millions of dollars to her family "foundation" from foreign sources/governments as she held office is considered the heavy frontrunner.
So far, Clinton is scantily opposed by the socialist senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders.
Another added competitor is the former governor of Maryland, Martin O'Malley, a beloved liberal icon after hiking almost $10 billion in state taxes and who made the state nationally infamous for a "rain tax."
