Many states have pushed their presidential primary dates forward to make their states more important. But New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie has voiced support for delaying the state’s 2012 presidential primary until June to save money and avoid losing delegates, The Wall Street Journal reports.

New Jersey’s primary is scheduled for Feb. 7, but that would violate new national party rules created to halt all the date push-ups.

“My inclination would be to say: 'Listen, these rules are so kind of screwy now about how we’re going to pick delegates . . . that I don’t know whether it’s enough value for New Jersey to move up,” Christie said at a town hall meeting in Cape May.

“We’re going to have elections in June anyway, especially in 2012 because we have a United States senate race at the top of the ticket,” Christie said.
