  Original Published: 11/5/2013 New Jersey voters seem poised to give Governor Chris Christie another four years. But Christie appears to be looking towards the Oval Office. Erin McPike reports. "Christie, Christie." New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is headed for a landslide victory to re-election, another step on the way to what many say is an inevitable presidential run in 2016. "America is going to be watching New Jersey," says Christie. The latest Quinnipiac University Poll shows him doubling his lead over his opponent, New Jersey Senator Barbara Buono. The National Dempcratic Party gave up on her months ago. "The whole country's watching," says Christie. "They're dispirited about the way government works, and look at the mess in Washington, D.C." Christie is road testing that anti-Washington message as he openly considers what's next for him. "I can do this job and also deal with my future, and that's exactly what i will do," he says. Next year, Christie will run the Republican Governors Association, a fundraising organization other prominent Republican governors have used to develop a national base as they gear up for a presidential bid, like Mitt Romney did. "Chris could easily become our nominee, save our party and help get this nation back on the right track again," says Romney.
