As noted by CNN on early Tuesday, Chris Christie will hold a press conference in Trenton on Tuesday at 1 p.m. (ET) and will announce his plans in the 2012 presidential election.

Christie, 49, a Republican first-term governor, is being speculated to make an attempt a run for president in 2012, which he have consistently denied having any interest to be in the White House.

Nevertheless, they were reports last month that said he may reconsider changing his decision and may seek GOP nomination to run for president next year.

Apparently, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney was noted to benefit if Christie decided not to run in 2012 since the two would have to compete with each other to fight against President Obama.

Meanwhile, a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll showed that nearly 42% of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents wanted Christie to run for president, 34% said no while the rest voted no opinion.
