Chris Christie: No Offer For RNC Speech

Jul 10 2012, 1:59pm CDT | by

What does this mean for Christie's fate?

Despite continuing to be a high-profile presence in the Republican party, New Jersey governor Chris Christie says he has not been invited to give a speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Tampa, Florida next month.

The official purpose of the RNC is to officially crown the party's presidential nominee. Of course, in recent history the nominee has already effectively been chosen before the convention, so it really just ends up being a place where party officials step onto the national stage and present speeches.

It is of course still very symbolic to have the nominee's acceptance speech. It is also the spotlight for that nominee's vice presidential candidate.

And Christie certainly has been the topic of discussion when it comes to vice presidential possibilities. So the fact that he doesn't have an invitation to speak at the convention means one of two things.

Either the party establishment doesn't feel he'd make a good presence at the event, or Romney is seriously considering Christie as a running mate, which would mean his speech would be announced at a much later date.

The one person who doesn't know the answer to those questions is Christie. He claims to be out of the loop on any sort of national position that might be in the wings for him.
