They don’t like Mitt Romney. He’s a Mormon, and these Christian Conservatives cannot see a Mormon- although he is a Republican – in the White House. So when a possible Rick Perry candidacy became evident, Republicans were overjoyed.
But over the last few weeks, the euphoria Rick Perry generated in the Republican/Teaparty base has quickly fizzled. And now, like a rejected lover who now goes from bar to bar looking for their next soul-mate, Republicans are still looking, and they’ve got their eye on the plus size gentleman sitting across the way nursing a drink. His name is Chris Christie.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is reconsidering his decision not to enter the 2012 presidential race — and he says he will let top Republican donors know within days about his plans, Newsmax has learned.
During the past few weeks, several leading Republican donors and fundraisers have been urging the popular Republican governor to reconsider his decision not to run and to enter the GOP primary.
These Christie supporters note that significant GOP support has remained on the sidelines of the primary fight. Many leading fundraisers have yet to commit to any current primary contender, including frontrunners Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.
Newsmax has learned that the effort to draft Christie culminated in a hush-hush powwow held in the past week with Christie and several notable Republican billionaires.
A source familiar with the meeting suggested that Christie seemed inclined to enter the race but said he needed more time.
