Former Gov. Chris Christie (R) was asked by The Dispatch what was missing in his life.
Said Christie: “I like making a difference. I was saying this to another governor who’s getting ready to be term limited. And he’s trying to decide what to do with his life and his career. And I said to him, ‘Look, one of the things you need to know is, the music stops. Like you watch your successor gets sworn in, the troopers take you back to your house, you wake up the next morning, and they’re gone. And the cameras are gone. And the phone calls stop, and the music stops. And you got to figure out that okay, what do I substitute in for that?’ So I said to him: ‘Before you decide whether to run for something else or not, and before you dismiss running for something else, just understand the music stops.'”
He added: “So I think the biggest thing is just not being able to make a difference. Not being able to get that stuff done and being at the mercy of other people to do it. You want to get back to doing that. And I also think, unfinished business from 2016.”
