Chris Christie: I’m ‘Not Really’ Interested In Being VP

Mitt Romney surrogate Chris Christie was asked Sunday if he’d consider being the GOP’s vice presidential candidate. His response to Bob Schieffer on CBS’ Face The Nation:

“You know, not really. What I’ll say though to you is that if Governor Romney were to come and talk to me about it, I’d listen. Because I love my party enough and I love my country enough to listen. But I love being Governor of New Jersey, and if you’re a bettin’ man Bob, and I know you are — If you’re bettin’, bet on me being the Governor of New Jersey into next year.”
