Christie: GOP Governors Group Won’t Distract Me


As the new chairman of the Republican Governors Association (RGA), Gov. Chris Christie will work to help 36 Republicans get elected governor in the coming months, a position that will take him out of New Jersey.  During this month’s edition of NJ 101.5’s “Ask the Governor” program, Christie insisted it won’t take his focus away from running the state.

“As you know, I’ve always done a fair amount of traveling in this job,” the governor said. “It’s not like the old days when the governor left the state and relied on the Pony Express to get a message back.”

He added he’s only a phone call away.

Christie was named the head of the organization on Nov. 20. In the role, he will travel the country campaigning for other Republican candidates for governor.

“I’ll keep my traveling down to what I think will be necessary to be able to do the job for the RGA, but my most important job is being Governor – and that will be my priority, and other things will take a backseat to me doing my job as Governor- I’m not that worried about it.”

Christie is also considered to be the front-runner for the republican nomination for president in 2016, but insisted tonight he won’t make a decision on running for quite awhile.

“I’ll make that decision when I think I need to, and not a minute before,” Christie said tonight.
