FILE  - In this July 27, 2015, photo, Republican presidential candidate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie speaks during a town hall meeting in Keene, N.H.  It was the summer of 1999, and John McCain didn’t have many big names on the side of his campaign for president. He didn’t have much money or decent crowds, and even resorted at one point to giving away ice cream to lure voters to an event. Enter the town hall. Perhaps none of the 16 candidates competing for the GOP nomination are following the McCain playbook as closely as Christie, who flew to New Hampshire the day he announced his candidacy and has held at least 21 public events in the state over the last month (AP Photo/Jim Cole, File)
