The Christie camp is refuting a report last night from CBS News - and mentioned here on Philly.com by Tom Fitzgerald - that Gov. Christie has told Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels that he will endorse him if he runs for president.
Calling it "entirely premature," and "speculation," Christie's top political strategist, Mike DuHaime, said this morning that the gov "has not made a decision about who he would endorse."
We know that Christie likes Daniels and his budget-cutting ways, and we know that Christie figures to be a serious kingmaker in the GOP race for the nomination. But the report - based on anonymous sources, without any context as to where the sources are from - made me skeptical. Christie will likely hold his cards on this matter for a while longer.
