Christie Says ‘No’ Again to Possible White House Run?

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie hasn't changed his mind: He's not running for president.

After a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Tuesday that is likely to stoke fresh speculation about his White House ambitions, Christie made clear he doesn't want the job in
2012.

He was asked by an audience member if he would reconsider.

He urged a capacity audience of about 900 to look at the website Politico, which pieced together a long string of video clips in which Christie says he's not running for president.

“Those are the answers,” he told the crowd.

He later said he was flattered by suggestions he should run, but added, “that reason has to reside inside me.”
