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.
In the event that state Sen. Diane Allen (R-7) doesn't run for re-election in 2017, the party has a short list of possible candidates it could field to try to head off either Assemblyman Herb Conaway (D-7) or Assemblyman Troy Singleton (D-7).Read More >

"And here was Christie — a tell-it-like-it-is, straight-talking, no-nonsense Jersey guy — telling about 60 members of the media what he really thought. 'Governor Branstad is a role model for me,' Christie gushed, referring to his 67-year-old counterpart from Iowa."- The New York Times
