Just when it was thought the GOP field was set, there might be a whole new wrinkle to the race. New Jersey governor Chris Christie is said to be re-considering his decision not to run for President in 2012.
Speaking to an audience at New Jersey’s Rider University concerning the lack of leadership in the current GOP crop, Christie said:
“I think what the country is thirsting for, more than anything else right now, is someone of stature and credibility to tell them that and say, ‘Here’s where I want us to go to deal with this crisis’. The Fact that nobody yet who’s running for president, in my view, has done that effectively is why you continue to hear people ask Daniels if he’ll reconsider and ask me if I’ll reconsider.”
If Governor Christie gets in the race, it will be the bombshell of the 2012 season and probably more bad news for Texas Governor Rick Perry. His decision will be announced “within two weeks,” sources said.
Stay tuned, folks.
