TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie gave a nod to the talk of his 2016 presidential ambitions during his annual State of the State address telling lawmakers he “will be here” next year.

Christie departed from the prepared remarks of his fifth annual address to knowingly tell legislators in the Assembly Chamber Tuesday that he will be standing before them in 2016 again.

Christie is weighing whether to run for the Republican nomination for the White House in 2016 and many question whether he would have to step down to pursue that effort.

Republicans applauded. Members of the Democratic majority were quiet.
