He's been struggling in the polls in Iowa, but hopes to make a last-month surge.

Republican presidential hopeful Chris Christie is in Waterloo today.

He started  by talking about the fight against terrorism. 

This was a big topic throughout his speech.

Christie said President Obama isn't doing enough, and that the country needs a leader with experience.

He mentioned 911, the attacks in Paris, and the shootings in San Bernardino.

Two other big topics Chris Christie focused on. One was drug addiction. He shared a story about a friend he lost to addiction, and said  pro-life means more than just the 9 months in the womb.

He also says there needs to be more transparency to how colleges bill students for tuition.

Finally, towards the end of his time in Waterloo today, the presidential candidate said while this campaign has been entertaining, there are 33 days until the Iowa caucus. Show time is over. It's game time.
