Republican presidential candidate and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Sunday that he would rather jump off the Brooklyn Bridge than serve in Congress.

Christie said that he had worked as governor with Republican legislators to reform the state’s pension and tenure systems.

“That shows I can keep the Republican party together,” Christie said. “Maybe they should send me the House caucus to try to help them with that.”

“You’re not running for speaker now, are you?” ABC “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos asked.

“I am not, sir, no,” Christie replied. “I would rather jump off the Brooklyn Bridge than be in Congress.”
