New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has been weighing whether to seek the Republican nomination for president, will hold a news conference at 1 p.m. Tuesday in the Statehouse in Trenton, N.J., according to an Associated Press report.
Christie had said he would not run for president but has been reevaluating that decision in recent days, suggesting during a fundraising speech at the Reagan library in California that he might decide to run if he thought the support were there.
“If this is the day that you decide you want to impress your friends on television, if this is the day you decide you want to take the governor of New Jersey out for a walk, I will give you the rule I give in New Jersey," Christie said. “You give it, you’re getting it back."
