    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is introducing himself to New Hampshire voters in a format he knows well - a town hall meeting.

    The likely 2016 Republican presidential contender drew a capacity crowd Wednesday to his first town hall in New Hampshire, in Londonderry. He opened the event by talking about his life story.

    Asked about problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs, he blamed them on a failure of leadership at the agency.

    He's in Londonderry for the first of what his staff calls a "Tell it Like it Is" town hall series.

    Christie has struggled to gain traction in the early stages of the 2016 primary campaign, but appears to be ramping up his efforts.
