Republicans are wooing the politically coy Gov. Chris Christie in hopes that he will give a huge boost to their slim chances of fielding a beefy contender who can take on and beat President Obama. Already souring on their thin slate of candidates, it is becoming clear to many GOP pundits that only a heavyweight like Christie can give them a stout chance of restoring the pachyderm party to power.
Rep. Peter king (R-NY) says he spoke to Gov. Christie again yesterday and that the Governor showed some signs of reconsidering.
"I asked him if he could please run for the presidency," said King, "and he told me he might be able to jog a short distance for it."
