NJ gov says no to federal PAC

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he has no plans to start a federal political action committee, further dispelling rumors that he plans to run for president in 2012.

Christie's former law partner Bill Palatucci suggested in a recent interview with The Courier Post of Cherry Hill that he might consider starting a PAC because "it's leaving money on the table by not having one."

Christie is often asked about running for president and starting a PAC could be seen as a first step for the Republican.

But Christie threw cold water on the idea Wednesday during an interview on NBC's "Today Show."

Christie says he hasn't started a PAC and has no plans to start one.

He has repeatedly denied running, and did so again Wednesday
