Is Chris Christie Reconsidering a Presidential Bid?

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has said for months he will not run for president in 2012. But some Republicans have made it clear they would support his bid. As Christie continues to air ads that attempt to boost his approval ratings, with messages like "the model for the way forward," there is speculation that Christie may change his mind. Many eyes will be upon him tonight, as he makes a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, and continues his three-state tour of Missouri, Colorado, and California, to raise funds for his party.

New Jersey's own Bob Hennelly, senior reporter for Takeaway co-producer WNYC, talks about Christie's advantages and disadvantages heading into a presidential run, and if the governor is even seriously considering throwing his hat in the ring.
