New Jersey governor Chris Christie continues to sidestep calls to enter the crowded GOP presidential field.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie says he's still not interested in running for president, despite the pleas from many Republicans.

Still, Christie had the chance to issue a firm "no" at the Reagan Presidential library Tuesday, but didn't.

Many see the fact that so many are pursuing Christie as bad news for the other Republican candidates.

"There're a lot of elites, a lot of Republican establishment big time donors who feel like they don't have a horse that they can back yet," says NBC political analyst Mark Murray.

Rick Perry's debate stumbles are giving many second thoughts.

Mitt Romney has been running for five years without firing up most Republicans.

Will christie answer the call?

"It's extraordinarily flattering, but by same token that heart-felt message you gave me is also not a reason for me to do it. That reason has to reside inside me," he says.

A lot of wealthy Republican contributors are said to be holding off on writing checks to Perry, Romney, Bachmann, Cain and the others until they hear for sure if Christie's in or out.
