Chris Christie knew it was doomed.
Although the ticket
asked him, he quit it
to avoid the G O P's gloom.
JT shares a story about ho Mitt Romney's first choice for his Vice-Presidential candidate, Chris Christie, turned down that 'honor' in order to remain governor of New Jersey. His reasoning?
If Christie would run on the presidential ticket, he would have to step down as governor, due to New Jersey's 'pay-to-play' laws. If he were to run, banks and other investment firms could not donate more than $250 to the campaign and still do business in NJ.
Would Christie had run if Romney had a chance of winning?
"But Christie adamantly refused to sacrifice his post, believing that being Romney’s running mate wasn’t worth the gamble."
That's faith in one's convictions.
