SIMI VALLEY, CA - SEPTEMBER 27: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie delivers remarks during the Perspectives on Leadership Forum at the Reagan Library on September 27, 2011 in Simi Valley, California. Influential Republicans are urging Christie to run for president and are prepared to raise money. Christie is on a Republican Party fund-raising tour with stops in Missouri and California, including a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum.
California GOP gathered at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library last night to hear New Jersey Governor Chris Christie speak. Republicans say he's a plain talking, no nonsense politician with a sense of humor.
KPCC's Stephanie O'Neill was at last night's fundraiser. She says Governor Christie was liked by the crowd but he continues to say he is not running for President.
