Chris Christie weighs in on his VP chances — and his friend, Cory Booker’s

WPRO: (CNN) – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Tuesday did not rule out the possibility of joining Donald Trump’s ticket as his running mate, just minutes after announcing he had voted for the presumptive Republican nominee

“You don’t get to make those determinations,” Christie told reporters outside a polling place in Mendham Township, New Jersey. “I’ve had no conversations about it.”

Christie was also asked about the VP chances of a fellow New Jersey statewide elected official, Sen. Cory Booker, joining the Democratic ticket. “That’s up to Hillary Clinton,” said Christie, who sought the GOP nomination himself before backing Trump.

Christie stressed that he has a good relationship with the former mayor of Newark, telling reporters, “I like Sen. Booker. I have great respect for Sen. Booker and we have been friends over the last, gosh, now 14 years.”

Christie also added that he didn’t think his comments would help his friend earn a VP nod.

“I wouldn’t want to express an opinion, because if I did I might actually hurt his chances,” Christie remarked. “I wouldn’t want to do that to Cory.”  MORE

4 Comments on Chris Christie weighs in on his VP chances — and his friend, Cory Booker’s

  1. Christie is a disastrous choice in terms of geographic balance.

    Trump: Born in Queens, has lived entirely in Manhattan as an adult.

    Christie: Born in Newark (and I don’t mean the one in Delaware), raised in Livingston, lived in Mendham as an adult.

    Education: Trump went to high school in Cornwall, New York, which most people would consider somewhat out of commuting range to NYC. Then he did his last two years of college in Philadelphia. Christie attended college in Delaware, returning to Seton Hall Law School for his J.D. Otherwise the two were educated in the metropolitan area.

    In other words, the entire ticket is a product of the New York metro area. Not good, especially in flyover country.
