Maria Comella a communications advisor to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie emails me “Governor Christie will deliver a speech tomorrow at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library entitled, ‘Real American Exceptionalism.’ The speech uses President Reagan’s transformative leadership to depict how the United States’ role and significance in the world is defined by who we are at home.” I’ve been led to believe that there will not be an annoucement tomorrow that he’ll run, but maybe we will get a hint.
Meanwhile, former Gov. Tom Kean, a close confidante, says Christie is considering a run “seriously,” an observation that is confirmed by numerous people familiar with the governor’s thinking and who have met with him. (A junior spokesman, Rick Gorka, seemed to be on last month’s script and flatly denied to reporters Christie was reconsidering.) Other sources confirm the consideration process goes on.
