MSNBC: Chris Christie Interested in Running for RNC Chair

‘According to “Politico,” Christie told members of president-elect Trump’s transition team he’s interested in the position’

SCARBOROUGH: "Your governor, New Jersey’s governor, where is he? I’ll tell you where he is right now. I can’t tell you where he is right now. That would not be good." 
BRZEZINSKI: "He’s making the case to be the next chairman of the Republican National Committee. According to Politico, Christie told members of President-elect Trump’s transition team that he’s interested in running for the position. Sources tell Politico the governor has embarked on an aggressive full-court press campaign for the job. But Politico says several members of Trump’s team have been encouraging the President-elect to consider other candidates, which itself is creating divisions amongst that team. At the center of this reported battle are current RNC chairman and incoming chief of staff Reince Priebus, who is a connection to the GOP’s establishment, and Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon and top donor Rebecca Mercer who have pushed the President-elect more toward his populist base."
