TRENTON, N.J. — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says the co-founder of The Home Depot and other Republican donors he met with Tuesday didn't persuade him to run for president.
Billionaire businessman Ken Langone is the latest to court Christie for a White House run. The first-term governor and GOP favorite continues to be talked about as a possible challenger to President Barack Obama, but his answer has consistently been "no."
Christie met with Langone and the others in Manhattan. Afterward, the governor said: "I said nothing different to him today than I've said to other folks in the past."
This spring, a group of Iowa donors visited New Jersey to try to persuade Christie to run.
Christie has hosted sit-downs with some in the Republican field including Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty.
