Report: Christie wouldn't resign to run as VP, had doubts about Romney's chances [View all]



Gov. Chris Christie would not resign as governor to run as Mitt Romney's running mate because he was skeptical that Romney could win, according to a front-page story in the New York Post this morning.

The Post reports Christie thought Romney damaged his campaign by only releasing limited tax returns and committing several gaffes during a tour abroad in July.

Christie would have had to step down because of laws trying to prevent pay-to-play. If Christie was on the ticket, the laws would have banned some companies from contributing to Romney's campaign because they have contracts with New Jersey.

Regardless, Christie was chosen to deliver the keynote address at the convention tomorrow.
