Christie: Daniels Deserves a Look for Prez

New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie has given a shout-out to Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, a likely candidate for president. "He's certainly somebody who I have enormous respect for and would give real consideration to supporting," Christie told talk radio host Chris Stigall, Politico reports.

Christie likes the idea of a governor’s ascending to the presidency. "If you look at it, governors have tended to be some of our best presidents. That's why I would lean in that direction," he said.

Many Republicans believe that Christie is just the man for the job, but he has pledged repeatedly that he won’t run next year.

But Christie is turning into something of a king maker when it comes to Republican presidential hopefuls. He's already met with Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty, and will be getting together with Jon Huntsman in the next week.
