Let the fun begin. He is a Romney guy, so it’s not a stretch if he wins the nomination.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said today it would be “presumptuous” to rule out being the GOP presidential nominee’s running mate next year, but could envision saying no if offered the job.
“I think it’s presumptuous to do that. Running for president, that’s my decision and [my wife] Mary Pat’s decision alone. VP is the decision of only one person — whoever the nominee of your party is,” he told Fox News in an interview. “The fact is if Gov. Romney comes to me and wants to talk to me about that, we’ll have a full conversation about that and then Mary Pat and I will make that decision about what we want to do with our future.”
Christie added: “But my view is, I think if you fast forward the tape to a year from now it’s going to be President-elect Romney and some other VP-elect and Chris Christie as the Governor of New Jersey.”
Earlier this year, Christie, a Republican, ruled out a White House run. He has since endorsed Romney.
