Despite his many pleas and endorsement of Mitt Romney, could Chris Christie still ultimately become the Republican nominee? On Sunday’s Meet The Press, Tom Brokaw thought that if the nomination process resulted in a brokered convention, pressure would be put on the New Jersey Governor to jump in the race.
“(Romney) could draw this out. And we could get to a brokered convention. I mean, if this gets downstream in the current mode there are a lot of old establishment Republicans who are going to be going to the state house in New Jersey and saying to Governor Christie, you’ve got to get in on this. They’ve got to find somebody else who can be a player, or, I think, outside of that, you’re going to look at a lot of possibilities of third-party candidates jumping in.”
