Executives Skeptical of Christie's Chances

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) "is dismissing his administration's traffic scandal as 'a footnote' in his political future. Some in the GOP's elite business class may be close to dismissing him as a serious contender for the party nomination in 2016," the AP reports.

"Shortly after Christie discussed his White House ambitions in Washington on Wednesday, Republican donors gathered for a hedge fund conference in Las Vegas shared a decidedly pessimistic view of Christie's presidential prospects. Even self-proclaimed Christie fans said his political brand probably has suffered permanent damage, acknowledging they've been forced to look elsewhere for a business-friendly presidential contender."
