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 says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
