According to a source close to Chris Christie, the New Jersey governor is still considering a run for the presidency in 2012 — despite what his brother told a newspaper and what Christie himself told ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer.
“I don’t feel ready in my heart to be president,” he told Sawyer in April. “And unless I do, I don’t have any right offering myself to the people of this country.”
He even joked earlier this year that the only thing he could do to prove that he was serious would be to commit suicide. But sources close to the Republican governor told ABC News Friday that “the pressure from donors and other people has intensified.”
If Christie ends up running, he’ll be spending a lot of time explaining those denials away, but as ABC News reveals, this outspoken politician is no stranger to famous phrases.
