    NJ Gov. Chris Christie predicts Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will win the 2012 GOP presidential nomination.

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he's confident the Republican Party will eventually settle on Mitt Romney as its presidential nominee.

    The former Massachusetts governor got off to a good start Tuesday, squeaking by former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum to win the Iowa caucuses.

    Christie’s said he’s not sure he’ll be able to campaign in New Hampshire with Romney before Tuesday's primary there. His annual State of the State address is set for Jan. 10, the same day as the N.H. voting

    “This is a really busy time for me,” Christie said while visiting a Middlesex County couple to discuss sick pay reform.

    Christie, who endorsed Romney and has campaigned for the candidate in Iowa, called the result “a good win.”

    “Landslide Romney,” he joked of the eight-vote victory over Santorum, before adding, “a win by any number of votes is a good win.”

    With a nod to the remaining GOP contenders, Christie said the competition is good for Romney’s campaign.

    Romney is the heavy favorite to win in N.H.

    Christie, says it's unlikely he'd be on Romney's ticket as a vice presidential candidate.
