Christie Says Romney Called Him When Details of 2012 VP Vetting Were Leaked

Some of Romney's aides were evidently not fans


Sayreville, New Jersey (CNN) – New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney called him immediately when news broke that someone had leaked details about last year's vice presidential vetting process.

"Mitt called me right away, and I could tell he was really embarrassed and outraged about it," Christie said Tuesday in an exclusive interview with CNN anchor and Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper.

"It's very disappointing," Christie said of the leaks. "I think it's a complete violation of trust of me and the spirit within which I entered that process."
