New Jersey’s Christie Still Up In The Air About Being Romney Running Mate
By Suzanne Mongahan
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Chris Christie has repeatedly said he will not run in this Presidential election, but Sunday on CBS’s Face the Nation the New Jersey Governor did leave the door open for the possible number-two spot.
Governor Christie describes this as a volatile election and says no one is a shoe-in.
But he believes, in the end, Governor Mitt Romney will get the Republican nomination. Christie continues to support Romney and Christie continues to say he will not run for President this time around.
But host Bob Schieffer asked the New Jersey Governor if he would be interested in being Vice President.
“Not really. What I’ll say though to you is that if Governor Romney were to come and talk to me, I’d listen because I love my party enough and I love my country enough to listen. But I love being Governor of New Jersey and if you’re a betting man, Bob and I know you are, if you’re betting, bet on me being the Governor of New Jersey into next year.”
Christie added that President Obama is a formidable candidate, but hasn’t made good on several promises.
