Chris Christie says running against Jeb would be 'stressful'

ABC News:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie doesn’t relish the idea of campaigning against Jeb Bush in 2016.

In fact, a presidential primary tussle with the former Florida governor would be “stressful,” Christie acknowledged Tuesday.

“You like to run against people that you don’t like, not run against people that you do like and respect, so of course it would be stressful,” Christie said on New Jersey radio station 101.5′s “Ask the Governor” program.

“I am close with the Bush family … [Jeb] has been a wonderful friend to me, especially during [superstorm] Sandy and the aftermath,” he said.
