Pressure Builds on Christie

Paul Gigot continues his crusade to get New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) to jump into the Republican presidential race.

"My guess is Mr. Christie would immediately join the front-runners in the polls, he'd be able to raise plenty of money, and his chances would then depend on whether his message meets the moment. Mr. Christie may decide for personal and political reasons not to run. But one of those reasons should not be his electoral prospects. The GOP nomination is eminently winnable, and on current economic trends so is the presidency."

Meanwhile, the AP notes that in a joint appearance Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) said he wasn't ready to accept Christie's position that he won't run, saying he believes Christie's "no" means "not yet."
