Gov. Christie Among Time’s ‘Most Influential’

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been named one of Time magazine’s 100 of most influential people in the world.

The magazine released its annual list Thursday.

A 9-year-old who Christie befriended after Superstorm Sandy wrote the accompanying essay about Christie.

Fourth-grader Ginjer Doherty recounted how the governor “told me not to worry — that my parents would take care of everything — and he looked very serious and sad, and he cried. He said he would be back to help out town.”

The 50-year-old Republican is frequently mentioned as a possible candidate for president in 2016.

Christie also made the list in 2011.

Christie was featured on the cover of Time in January, but complained at the time about a close-up photo captioned with the words “the boss.”
