According to a report from NJ Advance Media, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie turned down numerous jobs in the Trump administration, ranging from cabinet-level positions to an ambassadorship.

The report also says that he was not offered the job of Attorney General, which is a job that the former Republican Governor reportedly wanted.

The report makes it look like Christie will remain in New Jersey to finish out his term, which expires in 2018, rather than take a position in the Trump administration.

Christie made a short run for the republican nomination, but ended up dropping out and endorsing Trump, even becoming a huge surrogate for the President-elect, though he has had a falling out of sorts with Trump, as he was removed from his position as head of the transition team, naming him as one of several vice-chairs.

Christie has his own issues in New Jersey, as he enters his final year as governor with hisĀ approval rating at an all-time low, due in part to the George Washington Bridge scandal that has hung over him.
