NBC4 reports thatFulop joinssix editorial boards of New Jerseynewspapers that also want Christie to step down, but Christie challenged that earlier this month.He said to NBC at the time,"I don’t want to agree to the premise of a question that is dramatic but factually incorrect."The six newspapers are owned by the newspaperchain Gannett.

“Gov. Chris Christie must step down, he has made his priorities clear that time with Donald Trump on the campaign trail is more important than the people of New Jersey," Fulop said in a statement on the website. "Stand with me, by signing our petition to ask Gov. Christie to resign."

According to NBC4, Christie said Tuesday that he doesn't care and believes the calls for resignation come from the people who do not like him supporting Trump.

"I've answered this before," Christie said. "I'm not resigning. I'm serving my next 21 months as governor."
