With all the chatter of Gov. Chris Christie gearing up for a presidential bid in 2016, New Jersey’s governor has his own prediction of who may throw their hat in the ring.
It’s Sen. Barbara Buono.
That was Christie’s response during a Statehouse news conference Wednesday when asked by a reporter to comment on his gubernatorial opponent’s position that everything Christie does during his tenure as governor is molded by a 2016 White House bid.
“I say she’s more worried on 2016 than I am,” Christie quipped.
“That’s all she ever talks about,” Christie continued. “I wonder if she’s running.”
When reached for comment, the Buono’s campaign suggested she will be right here in the Garden State.
“Senator Buono will be far too busy cleaning up Chris Christie’s economic mess to run in 2016,” Buono spokesman David Turner said.
