Christie: 'Zero' Chance He's Running for President

Thursday, 04 Nov 2010 10:43 PM

New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie says he’s not running for president in 2012. Period. End of subject. Please don’t ask him again.

On Wednesday he told reporters he was sick of having to answer the question, according to Politico.

chris,christie,gop,president,2012“Short of suicide, I don't really know what I'd have to do to convince you people that I'm not running,” Christie told reporters at a press conference Wednesday in Trenton.

Christie, a rising star in GOP ranks who was much in demand by candidates in the final stage of the 2010 midterm campaigns, emphatically denied interest in a 2012 run, listing various reasons in interviews why he’s not interested in a national campaign.

But the question follows him everywhere.

“I've said I don't want to. I'm not going to,” he said. “There is zero chance I will.”

“I don't feel like I'm ready to be president,” Christie continued. “I don't want to run for president. I don't have the fire in the belly to run for president. But, yet, everyone seems to think that I've left the door open a little bit.”

Christie is scheduled to appear on NBC's "Meet the Press." The influential Sunday show's website is billing Christie as a "rising star of the party — a man who has been mentioned as a possible contender for the White House in 2012."
