Christie: It would be stressful to run against Jeb

“It would be stressful because I consider Jeb a friend. And he’s been a wonderful friend to me,” Christie said.

“You like to run against people that you don’t like,” Christie added, saying that Bush offered him advice on dealing with Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

Christie, whose administration is battling controversy and has not said whether he’ll mount a candidacy, said Bush, like everyone else, has to “determine if he has the fire in the belly to do this.”
