FREEHOLD - Gov. Chris Christie said today he hasn’t decided on whether he will run - for governor.
He said that he and his family are surrounded by troopers – whom he described as “nice guys” – and said his family has had to adjust to this lifestyle change.
Even routine events - such as taking his son to a baseball game - turn into a big thing, he told a town hall crowd here.
“There’s no way to be inconspicuous anymore,” he said.
He emphasized that “I drove” here and did not fly in a state helicopter.
He said he will probably make a decision concerning a re-election bid at year’s end.
Christie said the indecision does not stem from any dislike for the job, and didn’t mention at all the possibility of being asked by the presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to be his running mate.
“I’ve never had a better job in my life,” he said about being governor.
Gov. Chris Christie will head to New Hampshire on Wednesday to stump for GOP hopefuls Walt Havenstein (governor) and Scott Brown (U.S. Senate).Read More >

"The Republican Governors Association raised $130,000 from tobacco companies during Christie’s stint as the group’s chairman, according to the most recent filings in June. The veto allows Christie to keep the peace with tobacco companies — and may very well prevent them from investing heavily in a presidential campaign for U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, whose operatives could use the cash to finance attack ads against Christie in a tight primary contest." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
