[A YOUNG CHRISTIE?]
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Monday he will stick with his signature style and may “stray a little” from the teleprompter during his keynote address at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday.
Christie told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in an interview set to air Tuesday morning that he finds working off of a prepared speech on a teleprompter “less natural” than his more informal, off-the-cuff style.
“I don’t use text almost ever,” Christie said on the floor of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, according to a “Morning Joe” transcript. “So most of the time I think about what it is I want to talk about and then I get up there and I talk about it. Now, with the time restrictions here and obviously the different stage, they want you to work off a text and that’s fine.”
