It's Official: Chris Christie is Not Running for President

Moments ago, NJ Gov. Chris Christie announced that he would not run for president in 2012. Citing his loyalty and commitment to the people of New Jersey, Christie said that with so many serious people asking him, he seriously considered running but that "now is not my time." Adding that "New Jersey, whether you like it or not, you're stuck with me," Gov. Christie reaffirmed his goal of fixing the state, which faces a multi-billion dollar budget shortfall and intransigent union forces.

Christie did not endorse any of the Republicans running in the presidential primary.
