New Jersey’s Chris Christie was high on Mitt Romney’s list but refused to resign as governor in order to run, a Romney insider told The NY Post.
But Christie seems to have no ill will. He endorsed the duo, saying Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan understand the nation’s “economic stagnation” and calling them “uniquely positioned to make the tough choices necessary to confront our fiscal challenges.”
He could be announced as the keynote speaker for the GOP convention “as early as Tuesday,” the source said.
