New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie released his first television advertisement for the 2016 presidential cycle, dubbed "Leadership."

The 30-second ad shows Christie emphasizing leadership and how he would be as a leader by using footage from his announcement speech in New Jersey last week.

"I mean what I say and I say what I mean, and that's what America needs right now," Christie says to cheers.

According to Politico, the ad is part of a nearly $500,000 buy over four weeks across broadcast television in Boston and Manchester and across cable, radio and digital platforms statewide in New Hampshire. The ad was produced by Strategic Media Partners.
