Christie ‘thrilled’ by race requests
TRENTON | New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he never tires of being asked to run for president, but insists he’s still not doing it.
“How self-important would one have to be to become tired and annoyed by having people ask you to run for president?” Mr. Christie said Monday morning during an interview on a Philadelphia radio station.
“I’m a kid from Jersey who has people asking him to run for president. I’m thrilled by it,” he said. “I just don’t want to do it.”
That hasn’t stopped the Mr. Christie, who only took office in January 2010, from playing a kingmaker role in the race to the White House and having the top-tier GOP contenders over for dinner at the governor’s mansion in Princeton, including Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (he has since declined to run), former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
Jon Huntsman Jr., the former U.S. ambassador to China and former Utah governor, is scheduled to stop by in the next week, Mr. Christie said, adding that he had only met Mr. Huntsman once at a White House dinner.
“If I decide to support a candidate for president, I want to make sure I really get to know that person,” Mr. Christie said.
