Christie downplays prospects of GOP Cabinet post

TRENTON - After ruling out a presidential run earlier this week, Gov. Chris Christie is now downplaying any thoughts he would take a Cabinet post should Republicans win the White House next year, but not totally ruling it out.

"Never say never," Christie said last night on Townsquare Media's "Ask the Governor" program on WKXW. The former U.S. Attorney downplayed the possibility of joining a Republican administration if the party's nominee defeats President Obama, even in the position of Attorney General. Christie says he likes elected politics and enjoys being governor.

Christie ended speculation this week that he would join the current GOP presidential field. And last week, he raised more than $500,000 for the New Jersey GOP during a fundraising excursion to California and Missouri.

He is up for re-election in New Jersey in 2013.
