Christie may wind up–may–as Mitt Romney’s veep
Trenton, NJ, United States (AHN) – Some Americans were disappointed when New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ruled out a run for the presidency.
Disappointed Christie fans could get the second best thing.
Christie acknowledged Monday that Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential candidate, is a “convincing guy” when asked if he might say yes to the number two spot on the ticket.
The governor was addressing a high school AP history class when the discussion turned to the V.P. question.
Christie said, referring to Romney, “He might be able to convince me. He’s a convincing guy.”
Christie maintained months ago that he was not looking to be vice president, reiterating that he loves his job as New Jersey governor.
However, Monday he said that he would hear Romney out with an open mind if the question came up again.
No word yet from Romney.
