Hours before his scheduled keynote at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie slammed a New York Post report that suggested he turned down an offer to be Mitt Romney's running mate because he doesn't think Romney can win.
"It's just complete garbage," Christie said on the "Today" show. "The two reporters who wrote the story know me and have my phone number, and neither one of them ever called me to ask me about the story, to verify or debunk it. They just wanted to put something good on the front page."
"I've been working hard for Mitt Romney for nearly a year, traveling to 15 states across the country," Christie continued. "I absolutely believe he can win and will win.''
