Wow. Talk about a desperation move. Chris Christie, a failed presidential candidate, a failed suck-up to Donald Trump and now a failing Governor with no prospects on the horizon is now looking to the Chairman of the Republican National Committee:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is expressing interest in the job of Republican National Committee chairman.
Christie told senior members of Donald Trump’s presidential transition team on Thursday morning that he is interested in the post, according to three sources familiar with the talks.
The governor has been a longtime supporter of Trump, but has had a rocky relationship with his transition team as of late. Christie had been overseeing the transition but was booted from the post last month in favor of Vice President-elect Mike Pence. Some Trump aides believe Christie did a poor job overseeing the process; others said he clashed with Jared Kushner, Trump’s influential son-in-law.
Christie’s prospects for a job in the Trump administration have dimmed in recent weeks. Yet he has downplayed interest in a position, saying that he intends to serve out the remainder of his term as governor, which expires in January 2018.
No matter who it is, Trump and Priebus are going to have the final say. I can’t imagine they’d choose Christie especially with his penchant for wanting to one-up everybody in existence.
If somebody had suggested to Christie to be the Chairman of the RNC back in January, he’d have mocked the very idea. Now he’s the equivalent of the aging rock star who hopes people recognize him.
