Chris Christie would not pledge Tuesday to serve out a full term as governor of New Jersey if he is reelected next week, adding fuel to the prospect of a GOP presidential run in 2016.

Speaking on Good Morning America on the first anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, Christie said he does not have “a crystal ball” and couldn’t make promises about what will happen in the future. “I’m committed to being the best governor New Jersey can have for as long as I can possibly do it,” he said.

“I’ve been really honest with the people of New Jersey and told them exactly that,” he said. “I’ll do this job as long as aggressively as I can and my current intention is to spend four years, but we’ll see what happens.”
