Christie Will Not Rule Out White House Bid

In his first gubernatorial debate with challenger Barbara Buono (D), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) was asked directly whether he was going to run for president but did not rule it out, at first joking that he "didn't anticipate" the question at all, ABC News reports.

Said Christie: "Listen my mother told me a long time ago ... do the job you have at the moment the best you possibly can and the future will take care of itself. The fact is there have been people talking about me running for president since 2010 and they all said I would do it in 2012 and I said I wouldn't and I didn't. And the fact is after 2017 I'm going to be looking for another job anyway."
