New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has told his staff that he will be taking a job at the White House, the New York Post is reporting.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is telling friends and staff he is taking a role with the Trump administration, according to a source close to the White House.
The GOP governor’s position has not been worked out, but he would not replace Reince Preibus as the president’s chief-of-staff, the source said.
“Trump told him to be patient,” the source said. “Christie will only take something where he is answerable to the president.”
Christie’s spokesperson has denied any of these claims.
Christie was the first 2016 candidate to throw his support behind Donald Trump after exiting the primary.
