Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey gave a speech last night at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, outlining his positions on domestic and international policy. The enthusiastic audience repeatedly implored Christie to run for president, though the governor avoided the question. Those close to Christie say he is "reconsidering" whether to run, according to The New York Times. Anna Sale, reporter for WNYC's politics website, It's a Free Country, and Ron Christie, Republican political strategist, CEO of Christie Strategies, and former special assistant to President George W. Bush, analyze whether Christie is in or out of the 2012 race.
