As New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie considers jumping in to the Republican presidential contest, candidate Newt Gingrich offers a piece of advice.

“He’s a good governor. If he wants to come and play, we’d be glad to have him come,” the former House Speaker said, according to CBS New York. “I think Gov. Perry could advise him that running for president is a little more complicated than being governor.”

Some other candidates are open with their thoughts about Christie, too. “I think if Chris Christie decides to run, it’s going to have the same effect as when Rick Perry got in. The media is just going to be in awe of Chris Christie for about two weeks,” said Gingrich’s fellow aspirant, businessman Herman Cain.

“I think Chris has been the governor of New Jersey a year and a half, and I think he understands he has a big job to do there, and there are plenty of opportunities in races down the road for him if he wants to get involved in the fray,” said presidential candidate and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.
