WASHINGTON (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie isn’t ruling out the possibility that the topsy-turvy Republican presidential race ends up in a contested party convention this summer if former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney loses Tuesday’s Michigan primary.

Mr. Christie, who’s endorsed Mr. Romney, said he thinks Mr. Romney will beat former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum — and that would lessen chances of a convention fight.

But Mr. Christie noted that the race has had several different front-runners and probably will keep going up and down.

He told CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday that “we have to be patient and take a deep breath and let this process work its way out.”

The governor said he’s not really interested in being a vice presidential candidate but would listen if Mr. Romney asked because “I love my party enough and I love my country enough to listen.”
