Sunday show roundup: Spotlight on N.J. Gov. Chris Christie

After easily winning reelection on Tuesday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was in the spotlight for a different contest: the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. The top contender still won't say whether he plans to run, instead insisting that he's focused on serving his state. But questions remain. If he runs, can he win the nomination? What about the election? In a handful of appearances, he addressed those and other issues.

Meanwhile, Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham also made an appearance on Sunday, saying he won't walk back his pledge to hold up President Obama's nominees, though the "60 Minutes" segment that apparently inspired that tactic has since been retracted.
