Christie mum on White House run

At his Tuesday town hall in Long Branch, Gov. Chris Christie was again asked about a potential presidential run, and once again, was non-committal.

“On the whole running for president thing, we’ll see, I’m not sure, I don’t have to make a decision now and I’m not going to. I love my job, I love doing the job, I love living here, I’ve lived here all my life.”

He said that people do not understand that these decisions come down to more than just winning or losing because he and his families lives would be unbelievably affected by it.

Christie said that the decision ultimately come down to four variables.

“If I think it’s good for me, it’s good for my family, it’s good for our state and for the country, then I’ll probably do it,” he said.  “But, if I don’t think it’s good for all four, then I won’t.”

The governor added that he was honored to even be regarded as a potential candidate.
