Christie Told Fundraisers Last Week He Wouldn't Run

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), "who has kept the political world in suspense for weeks over his presidential intentions, told prominent California fund-raisers and donors as recently as last Wednesday he had no plans to seek the White House," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"One assurance took the form of a pledge Mr. Christie made to Meg Whitman, the newly appointed Hewlett-Packard Co. chief executive, said two people familiar with the matter. As a condition of Ms. Whitman hosting a high-priced fund-raiser for him, Mr. Christie said he wouldn't enter the Republican presidential contest."
