Christie ‘will certainly think about running' for president in 2016 if Romney loses

Chris Christie said Wednesday he would "certainly think about running" for president four years from now if Mitt Romney does not win in November, the Associated Press reports.

The popular New Jersey Republican governor resisted pressure to seek the Republican presidential nomination last year, but 2016 is in his sights.

"If there's an opportunity for me to serve in another capacity and I think I have something to add to the mix, I don't think I'd back away from it," he said, according to the AP.

It is rumored that Christie could be given a keynote speaking opportunity at the Republican convention in August.
