TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Chris Christie says he intends to remain as New Jersey’s governor but would consider a post in the Trump administration if it’s offered.

Christie discussed his status during an interview Tuesday on WPG talk radio.

Speaking from the Republican Governors Association conference in Florida, Christie said he has “every intention” of staying on until his term ends in 2018.

Christie chaired President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team until he was made vice chairman last week. Christie says he told Trump that if he’s asked to serve he would consider a position in the administration.

Christie was among Trump’s earliest backers, lending his vocal support after Trump’s New Hampshire primary victory.



Trump’s victory comes after the nearly six-week George Washington Bridge lane-closure trial in which two of Christie’s former allies were convicted.
