Chris Christie Open to 2016 White House Run

Jul 25, 2012 7:28pm

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he’s open to running for president in four years if Mitt Romney doesn’t win in November.

According to the Associated Press, Christie said he hopes Romney beats President Obama and is running for his second term in 2016, but if not he will “certainly think about it.”

“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,” Christie said at the event Wednesday in Ocean City on the Jersey Shore.

Christie mulled over his own bid for the White House earlier this year, but decided against it backing Romney in October.
