In a visit to Iowa on Monday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie claimed a lack of enthusiasm for the current field of Republican candidates for president, as noted in remarks during a trip to attend a Des Moines education conference and a political fundraiser for a congressman, according to the National Review.
“If I believed that someone has distinguished themselves in a way on the issues that I care about, that I feel enthusiastic enough to endorse them, I will,” said the governor about any future GOP candidate.
While Chrisitie’s aides believe he will make a difference in supporting an eventual candidate, that one person has yet to appear in a very crowded field.
In light of the current prospects, Christie claims he still has no interest in becoming a hopeful in the 2012 race for the highest office in the land. Still, in light of meetings with Iowa business leaders and donors in May, some in the GOP are almost giddy over the prospects of a bruiser like Christie wrestling with President Barack Obama over the Oval Office.
Many fiscal hawks point to Christie’s handling of a state government financially out of control and his battling with public-sector unions over benefits contributions as evidence that the Garden State governor may be the only hope the GOP has in a likely contentious 2012 general election.
