New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is swatting down criticism from GOP ranks that he isn't conservative enough, saying in an interview airing Friday that he's a "damn good Republican."
"Is it a fair question to ask that if you ran as a Republican for president of the United States, what Republican Party do you see that would support your candidacy out there right now? How would you survive a primary process on the current set-up of the Republican Party?" NBC's Brian Williams asked Christie, who is considered to be mulling a 2016 run.
