Chris Christie Exploring Presidential Run?

Despite the fact that Governor Chris Christie has repeatedly rebuffed all interest in running for President in 2012, it seems that maybe he was more bluff and bluster than seriously against it. Via Politico:

One of Chris Christie‘s top political advisers revealed that he is considering formation of a federal political action committee because of the extraordinary interest in the New Jersey governor.

Bill Palatucci, often described as Christie’s “political godfather,” said that not forming such a fundraising committee would be “leaving money on the table.”

Palatucci, Christie’s former law partner, made the remarks even as he tried throwing cold water on the notion that the governor — who’s gotten acclaim from national Republicans — is taking steps designed toward a presidential run.

“If reporters would look for a second below the surface, they’d see I’ve never been to Iowa,” Palatucci said, adding that another adviser, Mike DuHaime, “has not been to New Hampshire. There have been no lawyers hired to advise or investigate a presidential run.”

But on the possibility of forming a federal committee, the newspaper quoted Palatucci as saying: ‘I might frankly contemplate that. There’s so much interest out there; it’s leaving money on the table by not having one.”

So, are they trying to keep the fact that he will be running still on the downlow- while trying to get a step up on the political donations?  Or could the situation be just as stated.  Only time will tell…
