Update: Christie Responds to Iowa Donors Who Want Him to Run -- 'I Just Don't Want to Do It

“I’m a kid from Jersey..."

Radio personality Chris Stigall hosted NJ Gov. Chris Christie on his Philadelphia show today---and the inevitable question of 2012 came up. Namely: will Christie run?

“I’m a kid from Jersey who has people asking him to run for president. I’m thrilled by it,” Christie told Stigall.

But, Christie said, “I just don’t want to do it." He added, "I'm not there right now."

According to Mediaite:

While Christie has only been in office since January of 2010, the presidential talk has been going for a while, sometimes stoked by the man himself. However, he’s also been clear that he doesn’t want to run. So eyebrows were raised when it came out that big Iowa donors were meeting with the Governor at the end of May to persuade him to run. However, while Christie will meet with them, he has no intention of changing his mind.
