Christie ‘Extraordinarily Disappointed’ in Obama’s Re-Election

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told reporters in Long Beach Island today that he was “extraordinarily disappointed” in President Barack Obama’s re- election.

Mitt Romney is “a good and decent man,” Christie said. The governor said he was surprised at how quickly yesterday’s election was called.

Republican governors will be “folks who lead our country,” Christie said.

Christie said he is not thinking today about a presidential run. “I’m honored to be governor of New Jersey, that’s where I am,” he said.
