New York Times reporter on why Christie could be reconsidering joining the GOP presidential race

The New York Times reporter David Halbfinger, speaking with close advisers and operatives of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, learned that over the weekend his team is scrambling to put together a viable presidential campaign and that he is reconsidering a run. One senior advisor saying that though there is no campaign currently underway, one could be started within 24 hours.

Many people are exciting and begging for Christie to get into the race, but are they interested in the candidate or falling in line with the hype? Christie has a bold personality that attracts a lot of people but Republicans like Sen. John McCain are saying that he might just be the "flavor of the month."

McCain also went on to say, "If Governor Christie decides to run, I wish him luck...The swimming pool looks a lot better until you jump right in. The water may not be quite as warm as you think."

David Halbfinger, reporter for The New York Times, talks to American Morning about what he has heard from Christie's team.
