The clamor for Chris Christie to enter the Republican presidential race is again blaring like a church bell among some sectors of the party—and while the New Jersey governor maintains he’s not getting in, his schedule suggests that he is, at the very least, keeping his options open.
Christie will be in Southern California Tuesday, speaking at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley—an address that will be closely watched by those looking for signs that he’s mulling a run. He’ll also be raising money, appearing at events in Santa Ana, Beverly Hills and at the home of new Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman while in the state.
There are sufficient contributors for Christi to jump start his campaign financially:
They are rich. They are unattached. They are looking for a little excitement.
Meet the Draft Christie committee, a small but influential group of Republican-leaning donors and activists, many based in New York, united by a shared desire to see Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey run for president.
But is Christi going to run? He has a bit of time as a Governor and can generally talk a good line. (But then so could Perry - or so we thought)
Christi's biggest problem is his uncontrolled weight. Is hereally fat because he has no self-control? Or self-respect? Is he in sufficient health to actually endure (survive?) the full campaign?
Personally I believe that it he joins Weight Watchers he will be ready for the 2016 elections and might be a winner then.
