TRENTON, N.J., April 30 (UPI) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie indicated Monday he might be enticed to join the Republican presidential ticket this year.

Speaking at a school in Plainsboro, N.J., Christie said he has no real interest in being vice president, but he might be persuaded by Mitt Romney, who's expected to be the GOP presidential nominee.

Christie said he thinks it's "unlikely" to happen but if Romney "called and asked me to sit down and talk to him about it, I'd listen," The (Newark) Star-Ledger reported.

"Because I think you owe the nominee of your party that level of respect and who knows what he's going to say," Christie said. "He might be able to convince me, he's a convincing guy. But I really love this job, I really want to stay in this job."

Christie, one of Romney's early supporters, said during an appearance at West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North he will have to "wait and see" how it plays out, the newspaper said.
