WEST TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says as chairman of fellow Republican Donald Trump’s White House transition team he will be in charge of assembling a team of people to plan for the first 200 days of the administration and filling 4,000 federal jobs.

Christie addressed the issue on Wednesday at a news conference on his state’s business taxes.

Christie says a lot of the work will be done by volunteers. But he says he doesn’t think it will take him out of the state very much.

He declined to discuss the names of any other potential key advisers under consideration for a possible Trump White House.

Trump announced on Monday that Christie would lead his transition team, praising him for his loyalty and support.
