Chris Christie’s brother, Todd, and other members of the New Jersey governor’s inner circle insisted today that he won’t run for president, despite speculation that he is considering doing so, according to the New Jersey Star-Ledger.

"I'm sure that he's not going to run," Todd Christie told the Star-Ledger.

"If he's lying to me, I'll be as stunned as I've ever been in my life," said Todd Christie, a well-connected Republican fundraiser.

Tom Kean’s statements Monday that Christie is considering jumping into the race. Those operatives insisted that Christie won’t run, the Star-Ledger reported.

Similarly, Fox News reported this afternoon that Christie has decided not to run, saying that's what inside sources have told its political team.

Speculation that Christie might change his mind about running and run has escalated since Newsmax first broke the story on Friday that billionaire donors were pushing him to run, that he was considering the possibility, and that he might announce within days.

Christie would not answer questions this morning, the Star-Ledger reported.

As speculation continues, Christie is adding fuel to the fire, flying to California to deliver a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library at 9 p.m. Eastern today. His speech, titled "Real American Exceptionalism," will show "how the United States' role and significance in the world is defined by who we are at home," a spokeswoman for the governor told the Star-Ledger.
