New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said on Tuesday he will not seek the Republican nomination to run for president in 2012, ending speculation of his possible White House bid.
“Now is not my time,” Christie told a press conference, saying he had spent the past two weeks considering a run after being courted by big Republican donors.
“New Jersey, whether you like it or not, you are stuck with me,” he said, adding he has “unfinished business” as governor. . .
