Video: Gov. Chris Christie Speaks at the NJ Statehouse

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Amid speculation that he will decline to run for president, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has scheduled a news conference Tuesday afternoon at the New Jersey statehouse, a last minute addition to his schedule. 

The news conference will be held at the governor's office inside the Statehouse in Trenton. Christie has avoided reporters in recent days as those close to him say he has been reconsidering his earlier decision not to make a bid. Christie has been receiving encouragement from top Republicans and GOP donors to jump into the race.

Full disclosure, I'm from NY and a registered Dem. Don't know if what he is saying is honest or just smart political calculation, but I truly respect his decision - he took a job, he made a commitment and he's going to finish his term. Frankly that's pretty cool, and incredibly refreshing. Sarah - you could learn a LOT from this man.
