Christie leaves door open to 2016 White House run

TRENTON - Gov. Chris Christie has left the door open for a 2016 presidential run.

Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press" yesterday, Christie ruled out a 2012 run for president or vice president. But he left room for a Presidential run four years later.

Responding to a question about a White House bid in 2016, Christie told host David Gregory he was "going to need a job" after 2013. He added, "So maybe it will be that. Who knows?"The Republican says his decision will depend on how things are looking for him in New Jersey in 2013, when he is up for re-election.

Christie, who has repeatedly denied having presidential aspirations for 2012, stumped for 20 Republicans in 15 states in the run-up to last week?s election.
