Chris Christie, an active Mitt Romney surrogate who’s been rumored to be a dark-horse contender for VP and was wooed by a number of major donors and GOP figures to run for president this time around, is open to it in four years if the GOP ticket loses, per the AP:
The first-term GOP governor says he hopes Republican Mitt Romney beats President Obama in November and seeks re-election in 2016. But if the presidency is open, Christie says he’ll “certainly think about it.”
Christie, who rebuffed an opportunity to enter the contest for the GOP nomination this year, was asked Wednesday at a boardwalk stop in Ocean City about running for the top spot in the next election.
He said: “If there’s an opportunity for me to serve in another capacity and I think I have something to add to the mix, I don’t think I’d back away from it.”
