New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie isn't ruling out the possibility that the topsy-turvy GOP presidential race may end up in a contested party convention this summer if Mitt Romney loses Tuesday's Michigan primary.
Christie, who's endorsed Romney, says he thinks Romney will beat Rick Santorum in Romney's native state — and that would lessen chances of a convention fight.
But Christie notes the race has had several different front-runners and probably will keep going up and down.
"We have to be patient and take a deep breath and let this process work its way out," Christie said.
The governor says he's not really interested in being a vice presidential candidate, but would listen if Romney asked because "I love my party enough and I love my country enough to listen."
