Christie drafting GOP keynote speech
Gov. Chris Christie isn't giving any hints about his upcoming speech at the Republican National Convention.
But Christie says he's already written six drafts of the national address he'll give next week.
The 49-year-old governor was chosen by the GOP's presumptive presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, to be the convention's keynote speaker. Christie says he's excited, but not nervous, about his biggest political speaking engagement.
Speaking yesterday during a boardwalk press conference in Asbury Park, Christie said he's sharing versions of the speech with a handful of people who know his voice. He says the Romney campaign has not made any suggestions about its tone or substance.
