Gov. Chris Christie Being Vetted as Potential Vice Presidential Pick for Trump

Christie endorsed Trump for president just weeks after suspending his campaign.

Although Christie is going through the process, the two officials told ABC News they doubted that he would be Trump’s pick.

In addition to being been tapped in May to lead Trump’s possible White House transition, Christie has emerged as an influential voice on the Trump team.

At a press conference at the New Jersey statehouse, Christie denied that he would be vice president.

"All I can tell you is that my intention is that I'm going to serve the rest of my term as governor until Jan. 16, 2018, and then return to the private sector," he said.
