New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is dead serious about not being a senator.

“Let me just say this: I would rather die than be in the United States Senate,” Christie said over the weekend at the annual conference of the New Jersey NAACP, according to CBS News. “I would rather die.”

“I would be bored to death,” Christie elaborated. “Could you imagine me, banging around that chamber with 99 other people, asking for a motion on the amendment in the subcommittee? Forget it. It would be over, everybody. You’d watch me just walk out and walk right into the Potomac River and drown. That would be it.”

Christie, a Republican, also said: “When I say I’m never running for public office in New Jersey again, I mean: I’m never running for public office in New Jersey again.”

Implied: running for the White House is another story.
