Christie to run with Trump?

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — a former Donald Trump rival turned top defender — is being vetted as a possible running mate for the presumptive Republican nominee, a source confirmed to CNN on Thursday.

Christie has received the official paperwork for the vetting process, according to a source with knowledge of the process.Trump has said he intends to announce his vice presidential nominee at the Republican National Convention in July in Cleveland.

The New York Times was first to report Christie’s vetting.Though Christie ran against Trump in the GOP primary, the two have been long-time friends and Christie quickly endorsed Trump and became a reliable presence at his events after dropping out of the race. The New Jersey governor has not only been one of Trump’s highest-profile surrogates, continually defending him against critics, but also one of his closest behind the scenes advisers, according to sources familiar with the relationship.For Christie, it has been quite a departure from what he initially sought out to do in 2016: win the GOP nomination. Blunt, with a big personality and a history of electoral success in a reliably blue state, Christie was once seen as a — or perhaps the — front-runner for the GOP nomination.

Wounded by the fallout from revelations related to top aides deliberately closing lanes on George Washington Bridge as a form of political retribution, Christie still mounted a 2016 bid. In it, he wasn’t afraid to take a few shots at Trump, though he was always quick to point out that he and his wife, Mary Pat, were long time friends of the New York billionaire.”Showtime is over, everybody,” Christie said while campaigning in New Hampshire in January. “We are not electing an entertainer-in-chief. Showmanship is fun but it is not the kind of leadership that will truly change America.”For a brief period at the end of 2015,

Christie appeared to have righted his campaign, only to see it come apart under withering attack ads in the lead up to the New Hampshire primary. A disappointing finish in the state led to the end of his run, and, a few weeks later, to the endorsement of Trump. It was a move surprised — and even angered — many of the players inside his presidential campaign, sources say. One said the move was “such clear careerism — this wasn’t the man I signed up to work for.”Yet Christie has carved out an integral role inside Trump’s orbit. He’s operated, aides and advisers say, as a sort of all-purpose counselor of sorts to Trump in recent months — part strategist, part sounding board, part friend, and often (perhaps to the surprise of many in his home state of New Jersey), a calming voice of reason.”It’s fascinating that I’m now the person that can speak my mind without offending anyone,” Christie told reporters earlier this month.

  7. Omg that was hilarious! But I do agree with JoelH christie is a very nasty piece of work. Couple quotes that make me wonder what really happened between trump and him and what christie didnt do for him not what christie did.

    “Liberally sampling the hors d’oeuvres, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie expressed relief that a strike on the New Jersey Transit was averted last week. “Thank heaven, I can’t return to Trenton just yet. I still have 340 hours of campaigning left on behalf of the Donald in order to redeem my soul.”

    …When Christie’s endorsement speech exceeded three minutes, I told him that the airplane is waiting for him,” said Trump.”
