Excerpted from Politico: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is medically “fit to serve” and is working to get his weight in check, his doctor said in a medical report released on Friday.
“He has no medical limitations and is fit to serve as the Governor of the state of New Jersey,” wrote Dr. Rachana Kulkarni, a cardiologist who has taken care of Christie since January 2012.
The Republican, a likely candidate for president in 2016, underwent lap band surgery in February in an attempt to tackle his weight and “has been losing weight steadily since then,” the doctor said.
“After he turned 50, Governor Christie has taken a very proactive role in his health,” Kulkarni wrote. “He is aware of being overweight and has taken several measures to address this issue.”
