Let me take a look at Christie's record here...
OK, he was a lobbyist, not necessarily bad...but lobbied to keep securities fraud out of the state's Consumer Fraud Act (further review warranted).
Was an advisor to Alberto Gonzales (eh...), was a fundraiser for Bush jr. (2000...not quite SO bothersome), authorized warrantless cellphone tracking
of suspects (VERY bothersome! "Well, the courts said it was OK..." SHOW BETTER JUDGEMENT).
I'd definitely need to do a lot more looking into his politics, but so far I'm very much unimpressed with the company he kept and the judgement
exercised just from this bit here.
We'll have to see if further updates come in, but Politico's reporting Christie's brother Todd has been told and is convinced it won't happen:
"I'm sure that he's not going to run," said Chris Christie's brother Todd, told the Newark Star-Ledger. "If he's lying to me, I'll be as stunned
as I've ever been in my life."
