Start waving the flags, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie just announced that he would be willing to “listen” to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney if he ever came calling about a potential vice presidential nomination.
“There is only one person in my party who gets to make that decision and that’s Governor Romney” he said at a town hall meeting this afternoon. “If Governor Romney comes to me and wants to talk about it, I’ll always listen.”
Christie has always skirted around the issue. He said in January that, “Vice president is the decision of only one person — whoever the nominee of your party is. I think it‘s awful to say something when it hasn’t been offered. The fact is if Gov. Romney comes to me and wants to talk to me about that, we’ll have a full, complete conversation about it and then Mary Pat and I will make that decision about what we want to do with our future.”
He told FOX last year, “I think if you fast-forward the tape to a year from now, I think it’s going to be President-elect Romney and some other vice president-elect and Chris Christie, the governor of New Jersey.”
Still, the door is open for the possibility for a Christie VP nomination, and his fans are not going to give up hope.
