Though a number of Republicans across the country have been calling for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to throw his hat into the presidential ring, he has continually rejected the call and has sworn to finish out his gubernatorial term. Christie’s assertions have done little to decrease the public call for a presidential consideration, but perhaps a recent announcement by the Republican Governors Association will finally put an end to those calls. Christie has been elected vice chairman of the Republican Governors Association, providing a more concrete indication that Christie will not be running for President in 2012.
The RGA made the announcement yesterday morning, while also announcing that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will serve on the RGA’s executive committee.
RGA chairman Bob McDonnell said of the recent moves, “No governors better exemplify the type of leadership our country needs right now than Governors Chris Christie and Scott Walker.”
