Chris Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey, has been careful to say that he is not “campaigning” to become Mitt Romney’s running mate, the 2012 vice presidential nominee of the Republican Party. But he’s certainly open to the possibility that he would accept the job.
During a visit Monday to a high school in Plainsboro, N.J., Christie said he could be convinced to join the Republican presidential ticket.
“He might be able to convince me,” Christie said in reference to Romney, according to Matt Katz of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “He’s a convincing guy.”
