The election cannot come soon enough for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R).
The adviser and surrogate for Donald Trump is already trying to distance himself from the Republican nominee’s flagging bid for the presidency.
Christie, who chairs Trump’s transition team, would not give a straight answer when NBC News’ Kelly O’Donnell asked him if he is “proud” of Trump’s campaign.
“The person who needs most to be concerned about the kind of campaign they’re running is the candidate. Because it’s the candidate’s campaign. It’s not my campaign,” Christie told O’Donnell in an interview that aired on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday.
The New Jersey governor went on to suggest that he and other campaign surrogates should not be held responsible for the campaign’s performance.
“I’m proud of everything I’ve said, and that’s all I can control. The rest of it I can’t control,” he concluded.
