In yet another signal that he will not jump into the presidential fray, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie accepted the position of Vice Chairman of the Republican Governors Association on Wednesday.

Christie had been serving on the RGA’s executive committee and as the Policy Vice Chairman.

Despite continued rumors that Christie would jump into the race for the Republican nomination, this latest move may suggest that he does not intend to do so. (RELATED: Team Pawlenty awaits decision from Chris Christie)

As Brian McGovern of the blog Save Jersey points out, “You do not take an executive position in the RGA if you are going to run for President, you leave the RGA to do so.”

Indeed, Texas Governor Rick Perry recently stepped down as Chairman of the organization to run for president.
