New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said in an interview with NBC that he consulted with New York Jets coach Rex Ryan before having lap band surgery performed in February as a way to lose weight.
Ryan had the procedure last year and shed more than 100 pounds.
Christie's interview with NBC's Brian Williams is scheduled to air Friday at 10 p.m. EDT.
