Gov. Christie Says He is a "Damn Good Republican"
Has faced criticism from some in the GOP
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.
