NJ governor, amid scandal, says he has not begun to consider 2016 White House bid
TRENTON, New Jersey (Reuters) - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, enmeshed in a traffic jam scandal involving his top staff, said on Thursday he was "nowhere near" beginning to consider a possible 2016 presidential bid.
"I am not preoccupied with that job. I am preoccupied with this job," the Republican governor said at a news conference.
