Chris Christie is on the move.
The Republican New Jersey governor, who could become Mitt Romney's running mate later this year, wouldn't have much trouble adjusting to the red-hot travel schedule of a veep nominee. Christie already has been racking up the frequent flier miles all over the country, according to an analysis by his hometown paper, The New Jersey Star-Ledger:
A review of his calendar shows the governor has been on the road 54 days in the past eight months, starting when he was elected vice chairman of the Republican Governors Association.
The Christie road show has taken him out of state more than one and a half days a week, on average, according to a catalog compiled from interviews, his public schedule and documents, and confirmed by the governor's office.
In addition to the numerous trips to New York, Philadelphia and Washington, he has been to 14 states: California, Delaware, Florida, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio and Wisconsin.
There will be a lot more where that came from if Romney ends up tapping him as his No. 2 later this year.
