He said, as he has previously, that any announcement regarding the vice presidential nominee will have to come from the Romney camp when they are ready to make an announcement.

In concert with that, Christie said during a press conference that there is nothing to be read into the fact political strategist Michael DuHaime is headed to the Republican National Committee for the campaign’s duration.

“He’s a talented individual,” Christie said. “The Romney campaign is assembling as much political talent as they can because they’re going to need it.”

In addition, Mitt Romney is scheduled to visit New Jersey on Wednesday to raise money but the event won’t be open to the public.

Christie said that should not be interpreted as a sign of disrespect, although it’s realistic for the Romney campaign to recognize that New Jersey’s electoral votes are not going to him, Christie said. “The overwhelming likelihood is that Obama is going to win New Jersey,” he said.
