Christie: Romney Could ‘Convince’ Me To Be His Vice President
PLAINSBORO, N.J. (CBSDC) — Is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie changing his tune on jumping into the vice presidential race?
After months of saying he has no intention of being Mitt Romney’s running mate, Christie is now hinting perhaps he’d join the race with the Republican presidential candidate after all.
While speaking to a group of high school students at West Windsor-Plainsboro North High School, Christie did not rule out the possibility of jumping on the ticket.
“What I’ve said before is I really have no interest in being vice president, but if Gov. Romney called and asked me to sit down and talk about it, I’ll listen,” Christie said, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. “He might be able to convince me — he’s a convincing guy.”
Christie has repeatedly said he would serve the full term of his governorship.
Other potential running mates linked to Romney are Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Gov. Rob Portman of Ohio and Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana.
