NJ Governor Says Weight-Loss Surgery Was For Family
NEWARK, N.J. - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie says he decided to have weight-loss surgery for himself and his family, not to advance his political career.
Speaking at a news conference today in Newark, Christie said his weight will have nothing to do with whether he decides to run for president.
He says he never intended to make the decision public.
Reports say Christie had gotten the surgery in February.
