EDISON - Gov. Chris Christie may have dropped out of the 2016 presidential race, but some experts say that he may not be finished with the campaign trail.
The governor withdrew from the race after a poor performance during the New Hampshire primary. Christie came in sixth place with about 7 percent of the Republican vote.
However, according to political expert Patrick Murray, there may still be some room for Christie on the national stage.
“He’s probably one of the most charismatic politicians in the country today,” Murray says. “Could he have a TV talk show at some point? I think that’s something he could do.”
Murray also says that Christie should work on issues back in New Jersey now that he is off the trail. If he wants to run for president again, his record in New Jersey would come under scrutiny.
Experts say that Christie should now decide which of the remaining candidates he wants to endorse.
According to the experts, there is a possibility that Christie could be tapped for the attorney general or vice president positions. Christie has connections to candidates Gov. John Kasich and Donald Trump.
“Trump doesn’t make decisions based on the usual political calculations,” says Murray. “I could see a Trump/Christie ticket.”
Gov. Christie is scheduled to give his budget address Tuesday at 2 p.m. at the State House in Trenton.
