Daniels/Christie 2012?

“He’s certainly somebody who I have enormous respect for and would give real consideration to supporting” Christie told talk radio host Chris Stigall, speaking of Mitch Daniels.

“If you look at it, governors have tended to be some of our best presidents. That’s why I would lean in that direction,” he said…

He’s already met with Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty, and is set to sit down with Jon Huntsman in the coming week.

“You don’t see them going down to Louisiana and asking for [Gov.] Bobby Jindal’s support. They’re asking for yours,” Stigall said. “That speaks to your significance there.”
