Chris Christie Reconsidering 2012 Run, Will Decide in Days

Friday, 23 Sep 2011 05:10 PM
By Jim Meyers

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is reconsidering his decision not to enter the 2012 presidential race and he says he will let top Republican donors know within days about his plans, Newsmax has learned.

During the past few weeks, several leading Republican donors and fundraisers have been urging the popular Republican governor to reconsider his decision not to run and to enter the GOP primary.

These Christie supporters note that significant GOP support has remained on the sidelines of the primary fight. Many leading fundraisers have yet to commit to any current primary contender, including frontrunners Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.

Newsmax has learned that the effort to draft Christie culminated in a hush-hush powwow held in the past week with Christie and several notable Republican billionaires.

A source familiar with the meeting suggested that Christie seemed inclined to enter the race but said he needed more time.

Christie promised to make a final decision "within two weeks," the source said.

Another source involved in GOP fundraising tells Newsmax that that uncommitted fundraisers and donors have been receiving phone calls from top political aides to Christie, seeking their feedback about his possible entry into the race.

Earlier this week Christie hinted at the effort to draft him when he spoke at a special forum that included Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels.

Christie suggested to an audience at New Jersey's Rider University that the current GOP candidates are not answering the public's appetite for real leadership.

"I think what the country is thirsting for, more than anything else right now, is someone of stature and credibility to tell them that and say, 'Here's where I want us to go to deal with this crisis,'" Christie said.

Christie continued: "The fact that nobody yet who's running for president, in my view, has done that effectively is why you continue to hear people ask Daniels if he'll reconsider and ask me if I'll reconsider."

Christie has consistently and categorically stated that he would not run for president in 2012, noting he had significant work still to accomplish in New Jersey.

But New Jersey and New York Republican donors and bundlers who have backed Christie also have been courted in the past several months by Texas Gov. Perry's campaign.

Senior aides to Christie have been quietly urging his supporters not to commit to Perry, indicating Christie was still mulling a bid and would make a final decision after New Jersey's legislative races are completed in November.

But the rapidly changing primary landscape may be changing that timetable.

Perry's quick rise in the polls and indications he may be fading coupled with nagging questions about Romney's ability to lead the party after backing a Massachusetts healthcare law ominously similar to President Barack Obama's own Obamacare program may have created a window of opportunity for Christie.




ugh newsmax makes me feel slimy. didn't know it was based out of West Palm Beach.

Christie doesn't get mocked for being fat. there are a lot of fat politicians, celebrities, etc. He gets mocked because he's a priviledged, sanctimoneous piece of shit who preaches austerity to the average man, while at the same time stuffing his face with food and drinking $300 champaign. If he wasn't fat but and instead was a skinny little man with a big head, he'd be made fun of for looking like Mr Burns.

i mean we're talking a jonah hill level transformation for him not to look comical

and looking comical is not presidential, in our image conscious society.

because not that he's just fat, he's got the whole pantbelly problem and he looks kind of like if tweedledum ate tweedledee. if he had wide shoulders he'd be able to make it look all right with suits but he's like pear man or something

he made a claim that suggested racism was analogous to fat-ism (is there even such a thing?)
