He asked delegates in the room, “What is your verdict?” on Clinton’s record as secretary of state and the email scandal that has plagued the presumptive Democratic nominee.

The crowd cheered: “Guilty!”

In response, the Clinton campaign tweeted: “If you think Chris Christie can lecture anyone on ethics, we have a bridge to sell you,” evoking the “Bridgegate” scandal that has loomed over the Garden State politician.

Following his speech, Christie told Inside Edition: “Hillary Clinton wants this fight? Bring it on! Bring it on!”

Christie also said he had no help and “absolutely no orders” writing his speech from the Trump campaign.
