TRENTON - Hurricane Sandy has not only had a direct impact on the state. It has also altered the timetable of Gov. Chris Christie’s political decisions, particularly on whether or not he will seek re-election in 2013, as he admitted during Tuesday’s press conference regarding storm recovery efforts.
“I can't imagine that I won't start giving that some really deep thought soon,” he said in response to a question about a possible re-election campaign.
He said there’s only so much attention he can devote to other issues, given the depth of the rebuilding in the aftermath of the superstorm.
“It’s appropriate to admit that I have a certain amount of bandwidth,” he said. “I’m trying to use bandwidth that I have, the hours of the day I have, on this issue. I’m keeping my focus on this.”
Of the many issues he has to deal with, Christie said his decision on whether to run again falls in the “less interesting category.”
