Christie: I'll decide on 2016 next year

Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie stopped by the New Day set to weigh in on the midterm elections. He credited his party's wins to what voters have seen from Republican leaders in other states.

"People are so tired of the gridlock and the ugliness in Washington, they want to see things get done. I think they rewarded Republican governors because they've been getting things done."

Now that the midterms are over, is Christie ready to decide whether he'll run for president in 2016? Not quite; he'll have an answer sometime next year.

"There's three questions I'll ask myself: is it right for me, is it right for my family, is it right for my country? And if I don't answer yes to all three, I won't run, and if I do answer yes to all three, then I will."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who has controlled the Senate since 2007, congratulated Republicans on their victory. But there was silence from the White House after yesterday's results became clear. President Obama will make a public statement today on an election many will see as a rejection of his presidency, and he will host bipartisan leaders at the end of the week to try to chart a way forward.
