As I come to you “live“, from downtown Washington D.C., two blocks from the White House in my office. We now officially have one less Republican to worry about during the upcoming 2012 Presidential campaign.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has decided not to run for president in 2012, according to a source informed of his thinking. Christie has called a 1 p.m. press conference in Trenton to announce the decision.
His advisers acknowledged in recent days that he was taking a second look at the race after repeatedly denying interest in a bid.But, Christie was also quite open about his doubts about his readiness for the race and the challenges inherent in starting so late in the presidential process.
His decision is the last major domino to fall in the Republican race, which has been defined by a series of rapid rises and falls among conservative candidates and the courting of not-yet-candidates into the race. [source]
A win for the Democrats.
