New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who will deliver the Republican National Convention keynote speech tonight in Tampa, says a story claiming he turned down a vice presidential offer from Mitt Romney over concerns the Republican will not win in the General Election is not true.
“Much of what was said in that story just wasn’t true,” he said. “And they never talked to me. Both of those folks know me, so if they wanted to talk to me, they could have.”
The New York Post story, which cites anonymous sources, reports that the Romney camp asked Christie to resign his office as pay-to-play laws would have barred donations to the campaign from large banks across the country.
