Chris Christie for RNC Chairman?

Chris Christie will not be ignored.

And he’s not going away.

If some of the rumors are correct, he may be looking to challenge other rumored contenders such as Carly Fiorina, for the open spot as Republican National Committee chairman.

Christie, a longtime supporter of President-elect Donald Trump, told members of his transition team he may mount a bid to succeed RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, Trump’s incoming chief of staff, according to Thursday reports.

The New Jersey governor faces dismal approval ratings in his own state. The conviction this month of two former allies on criminal charges stemming from the “Bridgegate” scandal has only increased the pressure on Christie.

Christie became one of the first of Trump’s vanquished primary foes to go full-throated toady for the Manhattan billionaire.

Early rumors were that the months of stumping for Trump, fetching his lunch, and enduring fat jokes along the campaign trail would pay off with the VP slot, but that did not materialize.

Christie was then put in charge of Trump’s transition after his surprise win of the presidency, but that ended abruptly, as well, with Trump expelling any remaining Christie connections from the team.

Christie may still be hoping to regain the favor of his liege and win some slot in Trump’s cabinet, but in the meantime, it sounds like he’s keeping his options open.
