Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie would be on anybody’s short list for a vice presidential running mate. Romney calls Christie an
“extraordinary person” and “one of the leading figures in the Republican party.”
The two appeared together on NBC’s “Today” show – and pointedly didn’t reject running mate rumors – the day after Christie handed Romney his endorsement. Asked if Christie would
make a good match for a ticket with him, Romney said the two are great friends who agree on a host of issues.
