Christie again says he's not running

Some Republicans may be looking for someone to swoop in to energize the 2012 presidential field, but Chris Christie said again this morning it's not going to be him.

NBC's Lauren Selsky reports that when asked at an education forum in Washington if he will run, the Republican New Jersey governor rolled his eyes and said, emphatically, "No, I'm NOT running for president."

In November 2010, Christie even invoked suicide to stress he's not running. "Short of suicide," Christie said, "I don't really know what I'd have to do to convince you people that I'm not running."
