NEW YORK (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he’ll consider his options after he leaves office and hasn’t declared himself a candidate to work at a sports radio station in New York.
The Republican spoke by telephone on WFAN’s “Boomer and Carton” program Thursday, one day after The Record newspaper reported the station’s program director said he would consider Christie among “plenty of candidates” to replace afternoon host Mike Francesca. Francesca is leaving the station at the end of the year.
Christie’s second term ends in January 2018 and he cannot seek re-election.
Christie says he hasn’t accepted a White House job and addressed the radio gig by saying: “To become an official candidate, don’t you have to declare yourself one?”
The governor likened himself to a baseball free agent and says he’ll consider “all different kinds of options.”
