With rumors swirling that he is an official candidate to one day replace Mike Francesa on WFAN, Chris Christie called in to the Boomer & Carton Show on Thursday to halt the rumor mill and clear the air.

“To become an official candidate, don’t you have to declare yourself one?” New Jersey’s governor said with a laugh.

So, what will it be, national security advisor in the Trump White House or afternoon host on WFAN?

“I’ll tell you something, Boomer, it’s a very tough choice. But I’m going to keep my powder dry and see what the best offer is. I know that’s what you would do,” Christie said. “And the great thing Craig is, now, listening to your willingness to partner with both me and Boomer, well, that now puts a whole new coat of paint on the barn, doesn’t it Boomer?”

Christie also shed light on a report that stated he had accepted a job at the White House.

“The New York Post report was blatantly false,” he said. “I have accepted no job at the White House. No, I am the governor of New Jersey.”

Finally, Christie confirmed he is not an official candidate for a job at WFAN.

“When my term concludes, at the end of 2017, I will be considering all different kinds of options about what to do next with my career. I feel like a bit of a baseball player. I’ll be a free agent for the first time in 16 years. So, we’ll see what happens,” he said.

So, that’s that.
