Gov. Chris Christie will not be named chairman of the Republican National Committee as President-elect Donald Trump assumes the White House, two sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to NJ Advance Media on Thursday morning.
Christie had been lobbying for the position over the last week, but he and Trump came to the decision mutually, said the sources, who requested anonymity to discuss the scenario candidly.
One source close to Christie said Trump's team is continuing to talk to the New Jersey governor, a longtime Trump friend and adviser, about various other positions in the incoming administration.But, the source noted, Christie wants to serve out his second and final term as governor -- which ends Jan. 18, 2018.
The source added that Christie is close to Trump and will "certainly remain as an informal adviser."
