Christie Says Contested GOP Convention Is Possible

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie isn't ruling out the possibility that the topsy-turvy GOP presidential race may end up in a contested party convention this summer if Mitt Romney loses Tuesday's Michigan primary.

Christie, who's endorsed Romney, says he thinks Romney will beat Rick Santorum in Romney's native state -- and that would lessen chances of a convention fight.

But Christie notes the race has had several different front-runners and probably will keep going up and down.

He says "we have to be patient and take a deep breath and let this process work its way out."

The governor says he's not really interested in being a vice presidential candidate, but would listen if Romney asked because "I love my party enough and I love my country enough to listen."

    @Disgusted: You seem to be simply lost. @Reality: Both major parties are all about power and both are controlled by the same NWO elites who just play the voters against one another while the underlying agenda continues. The only difference between which party is in power is the speed at which the agenda moves forward. American voters lost the guidepost of principles long ago in favor of personalities promoted by the parties. We keep hearing the same old things no matter who the personality is and regardless of whichever one wins, business continues as usual. Unless the majority of Americans return to being self sufficient instead of looking for "nanny" to do for them, America will become a third world Socialist cesspool.

    Rick Santorum is a religious fanatic. The only difference between him and Obama is what part of my private life they believe they have the right to control. I am as conservative as they come, but I prefer a borderline socialist to a fanatic.

    "I love my party enough and I love my country enough to listen." -------- He loves his party. Notice he put the party first and country second. That's what's wrong on both sides...they love their party too much.

    The GOP is lost in bigotry and hate.

      If you need a refresher course on bigotry in politics I recommend reading anything historical on the Democrat Party as well as current democrat party affiliations. The anti Semitic OWS movement backed openly by Obama. The black panthers who you can find video of Obama speaking with at random gatherings sponsored by them. Not to mention their new leader is a reoccurring guest at the whitehouse(under his birth name). The muslim brotherhood who wants to destroy America and slaughter christians and jews in the middle east as well in America. Let's also not forget the founders of the KKK, the democrat Party who stole reparations away from the blacks when slavery ended as well as voted against civil rights 3 times, while republicans tried to pass it. Democrats use welfare as a form of reparations and buying votes instead of encouraging blacks to get jobs and a education. Lets not forget Jim crowe laws! As well the slums of America (Detroit, Philly and DC to name a few) Democrat controlled for decades. See what they did to those communities, ironically Union labor cities as well, they are all trash cities, welfare cities with no jobs but the idiots still elect democrats. You should know history before running your mouth you tend to look stupid now Disgusted.

        It was the republicans and southern democrats who tried to defeat the civil rights act of 1964. Whites remain the highest recipients so welfare (mainly because whites are in majority). As far a welfare states, California, Maine, Tennessee, Massachusetts, and Vermont are the top 5. Not because the people in these states are lazy, the economic climate in those states are dire. No need to justify your racism through fictional beliefs, your life is your own. No one made you drop from high school or move into that trailer community.
