Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, considered one of President Donald Trump's top candidates for White House chief of staff, abruptly withdrew from consideration Friday, saying now is not the right time for him to take the job.Christie met Trump at the White House Thursday night and immediately shot to the top of the president's short list to fill an opening to be created when retired Marine Gen. John Kelly steps down in early January.White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told reporters it was possible Trump could ask Kelly to stay a bit beyond his scheduled departure in early January.Kelly lasted nearly a year and a half, having succeeded Trump's first chief of staff, Reince Priebus, who was dispatched after six months.
