Christie Quips: I Want to Know If I Blew It
Tuesday, June 19, 2012
Governor Chris Christie again played coy when asked whether he would run for vice president – saying he would consider it but doubted GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney would ask.
Speaking during a town hall at Cedar Grove High School, Christie, who is featured on the cover of Newsweek, joked that his issue would be a worst-seller.
"Sales will plummet," Christie quipped. "And it says, ‘Has Chris Christie blown it?’ is the headline. I am intrigued. I want to know if I blew it."
Christie said he was relying on advice from his late mother.
“What she said to me was, ‘Chris, do the job you have as well as you can do it, and your future will take care of itself.’"
