FORDS - According to sources, Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) may launch a presidential bid after spending months denying that he would throw his hat into the ring.

Two sources close to Christie say the governor is seriously reconsidering running following an aggressive draft effort from Republicans and donors unhappy with the GOP field.

If he does decide to run for higher office, he would join the state's last six chief executives who left office earlier than expected.

Christie criticized President Barack Obama yesterday while fundraising for Republicans in Louisiana.

"If you're looking for leadership in America, you know you're not going to find it in the Oval Office," he said. "If you're looking for leadership in America, you're finding leadership in America in the statehouses."

The deadline to file for the crucial Florida primary is Oct. 31.
