Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) said Monday that Mitt Romney might be able to persuade him to accept the No. 2 slot on the GOP presidential ticket.

Christie, who has repeatedly said he isn’t interested in being the vice president, said if the presumptive nominee called and asked him to consider the post, he would listen.

“He might be able to convince me. He’s a convincing guy,” Christie told an AP History class in Plainsboro, N.J., according to the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Matt Katz.
