NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he decided to have weight-loss surgery for himself and his family, not to advance his political career.
Speaking at a news conference Tuesday in Newark, Christie said his weight will have nothing to do with whether he decides to run for president.
He says he never intended to make the decision public.
The New York Post first reported Tuesday that Christie had had a weight-loss surgery in February.
