Democrat Senator Bob Menendez was indicted on federal bribery charges.

He is already facing a challenger from his own party.

RINO Chris Christie was asked if he would run for the seat – he said no.

He said, “If I didn’t appoint myself to the United States Senate, the easiest way to get there, I sure as heck am not going to run for it.”

The Hill reported:

Republican presidential candidate and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Sunday he has no interest in running against Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) following the New Jersey lawmaker’s indictment on federal bribery charges.

When asked on NBC’s “Meet The Press” if he would run against Menendez, who is up for reelection in 2024, Christie said: “No, I have no interest in being in the United States Senate.”

Christie said he has completely ruled out a Senate run throughout his career.

“I had a chance to appoint myself to the United States Senate, Kristen, in 2013 when for New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg passed away and I was governor,” Christie said. “If I didn’t appoint myself to the United States Senate, the easiest way to get there, I sure as heck am not going to run for it.”
