    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he's open to running for president in four years if the job is open.
     
    The first-term Republican says he hopes fellow Republican Mitt Romney beats President Barack Obama in November and seeks re-election in 2016.  But if the presidency is open, Christie says he'll ``certainly think about it.''

    Christie rebuffed an opportunity to seek the GOP nomination this year. He was asked Wednesday at a boardwalk stop in Ocean City about running for the top spot in the next election.
     
    He said: ``If there's an opportunity for me to serve in another capacity and I think I have something to add to the mix, I don't think I'd back away from it.''

    Christie has been mentioned as a possible Republican convention keynote speaker.
