New Jersey’s governor says size doesn’t matter.

Chris Christie told interviewer Barbara Walters in her “10 Most Fascinating People of 2012” special that his weight won’t be a factor in deciding whether or not he’ll run for president.

Christie admitted to being heavy but he says it’s not stopping him from doing a good job as governor.

He cited his 18-hour days following Superstorm Sandy as evidence of his ability to work well despite his weight.

He also told Walters that his size would never stop him from a chance to run for president.

Right now, he’s prepping for a re-election bid in Trenton and is rumored to be considering a run for the White House in 2016.
