Chris Christie says he’ll be “more ready’’ if he decides to run for president in 2016.
In the most dramatic statement yet about his political future, Christie was emphatic when asked by the Newark Star-Ledger
if he will be more prepared to run in 2016 than he was this year.
“Yeah, you’re damn right I’d be more ready,’’ the outspoken New Jersey governor said.
Christie — running for his second term for governor this November — told the newspaper he hopes to beat his opponent by the biggest margin of any Republican.
"I'll consider that a raging success and a historic success," Christie said. "I'd consider that to be a real affirmation of my time in office and my vision for the future."
Christie already is making amends for his criticism of John Boehner after the House Speaker and other top GOP lawmakers delayed the vote on a Hurricane Sandy relief package.
"We had a bad night with the speaker. He had a better next day," he told the Star-Ledger, referring to Boehner’s quick decision to reschedule a vote.
"I don’t think it’s fair for me to judge John Boehner just in that moment."
