Looks like the GOP will have to be content with what it has: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will not enter the race. "For me, the answer was never anything but no … The no never changed,” Christie said during a news conference Tuesday. “It did not feel right to me, in my gut, to leave now when the job here was not finished. Now is not my time.” Explaining his decision to flirt with the idea of running, he said that he “felt an obligation” to reconsider his decision when “serious people across the spectrum” urged him to make a White House run.
