(Updates with Christie comment in second paragraph.)

Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said Mitt Romney hasn’t asked him to be his vice presidential running mate in the 2012 U.S. presidential race.

“It hasn’t been offered, so there’s nothing to consider,” Christie said today in Paramus. “There are certain personalities appropriate for being vice president. I don’t necessarily think mine is one of them.”

Christie, 49, endorsed Romney for president yesterday in New Hampshire prior to the Republican presidential debate. On Oct. 4, he said he wouldn’t join the presidential race.

Christie said he is a “member of the team” and plans to campaign for Romney, the former Massachusetts governor.
