CAMDEN  (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie (R) says it would be "foolish" to decide now whether to run for president in 2016.

The Republican governor was asked again about his possible White House ambitions when he traveled to Camden on Monday afternoon.

Christie said that running for president is "something that I'm thinking about." But the governor said he's still "far off from making any decision like that" and won't make up his mind until early 2015.

Christie says his focus now is first and foremost on being the governor of New Jersey and serving as chairman of the Republican Governors Association.

Still, he pointed to his ramped-up travel schedule and noted that he's visited 15 states in the last six months.
