According to a report on Observer-PolitickerNJ,  Christie told the closing luncheon of the annual New Jersey League of Municipalities Convention, that he intend to serve his full term.

“I have every intention of serving out my full term as governor. I have said that from the beginning,” Christie said. “I hope that you notice the words that he used on election night. They were his and he chose them carefully. He wants to unite this country and bring people together,” he added of Trump.

“I’m not worried and I’m not nearly as preoccupied as the people who cover me and some of the people who are attempting to follow me about where exactly this will go,” he said.

With Christie’s approval ratings below 20%, many in New Jersey were hopeful that Christie would accept a position in the Trump Administration and leave the final year of his governorship to Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno.   But Christie’s role in the President-elect’s inner circle has appeared to diminish since the surprising election result last week.  Vice President-elect Mike Pence replaced Christie as chairman of the Presidential Transition Team and much of the work that Christie had accomplished since he was appointed to head the transistion last summer has been undone by Pence and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, according to multiple media reports.
