New Jersey Governor Chris Christie Will Not Run for President in 2012

Trenton, New Jersey–(ENEWSPF)–October 4, 2011.  In a Press Conference today in Trenton, Republican Governor Chris Christie said that he has decided not to run for President in 2012.  

“Now is not my time. I have a commitment to New Jersey that I simply will not abandon,” Christie said. “That’s the promise I made to the people of this state when I took office.”

“I felt like it was my obligation as I said before given the seriousness and the amount of people who were coming to me and asking me to reconsider to reconsider and I did,” Christie said. “In the end I came back to the same place I was in the whole year.”

Christie, the recently named vice chair of the Republican Governors Association said his focus will be on ensuring that President Obama is a one term president.

“He’s failed the American people because he’s failed that absolute litmus test to be President of the United States and that’s to know how to lead and how to decide,” Christie said.
