Gov. Christie says his wife refused to move to Washington for Trump administration post

Gov. Chris Christie says he turned down several jobs in the upcoming Donald Trump administration because his wife refused to move to Washington.



Appearing on New York radio station WFAN's "Boomer and Carton" program Wednesday, Christie said Trump did not offer him a job that he thought was exciting enough to leave his office and his family.



Two of the couple's children live at home and are in high school.



Christie is in the final year of his second and last term as governor.



Trump on Monday told The Wall Street Journal, "at some point, we're going to do something with Chris."



The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
