Governor Chris Christie’s presidential campaign today released its second television ad aimed at New Hampshire voters. Against a backdrop of Iran images and a beaten looking President Barack Obama, Christie in the ad says Obama lied about the Iran nuclear deal and by contrast plays up what he says are his national security credentials.

Watch the ad here.
