Christie faces White House decision this week

Republican Chris Christie discussed a possible run for president with top advisers over the weekend and needs to decide by week’s end, a Republican familiar with the discussions said on Monday.

Christie, the New Jersey governor, has been wrestling with whether to jump into the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination and is under strong pressure from many donors and party activists to do so.

“He is thinking about it,” said the Republican, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “He did meet with the advisers this weekend. From the way it’s characterized to me, he’s still not planning to run unless they give him some kind of compelling argument.”
