Walters in Trenton to interview Christie

Television personality Barbara Walters was in the statehouse today interviewing Gov. Chris Christie as part of the release of her "10 Most Fascinating People of 2012."

Christie's was one of seven names revealed Monday.  The remaining names as well as the top name on the list will be revealed on December 12.

Walters and Christie were filmed talking in the statehouse rotunda as well as other spots around the statehouse. 

Asked why Christie was chosen for the list, Walter said Christie was picked because of "the way that he handled Hurricane Sandy and the fact that he’s probably now the best known governor in America."

Walters described Christie as “pleasant, smart, funny and good natured.”

“It was a very easy interview," Walters said. "He’s extremely easy to talk to.”
