Wall Street Rules Could Create Problem for Christie

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) "waves off talk of a 2016 presidential run, even as his team has already started debating an issue lurking just beyond his November reelection: So-called 'pay-to-play' rules that bar federal candidates from accepting campaign contributions from investment firms that do business in their states," Politico reports.

"It's something any sitting governor who wants to run for president has to consider, but an especially acute problem for one across the river from New York City's financial markets -- and who'd be expected to lean on Wall Street types to help finance his campaign."
