While many of those thought to be in contention for the No. 2 spot on the GOP ticket have been coy about whether they would accept the nomination, Christie told “Squawk Box” that an offer would be hard to resist.

“This is an election with one voter, Mitt Romney. He gets to decide who he thinks should be the vice president of the United States,” Christie said. “I love being governor of New Jersey, you can tell. But the fact is, if Gov. Romney picks up the phone and calls, you have to answer the call and listen at least.”
