BROOKSIDE, N.J. (AP) — Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he'll discuss his potential 2016 presidential bid with his family over the holidays and make a decision soon after.

Christie made the comments Wednesday to a group of students at Mendham Township Middle School, one of the state's 2014 National Blue Ribbon Award winners. He says he wants to talk about the issue when his oldest children are both home from college.

Christie says he'll likely make his decision early next year.

Republican former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush announced this week he would "actively explore" his own potential campaign.

Christie and Bush appeal to many of the same donors. Bush's entry puts pressure on Christie to speed up his own timeline.
