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.
