(Washington, DC) -- A few of the governors meeting for a four-day summit in the nation's capital have ambitions larger than their own state. The winter meeting of the National Governor's Association kicks off today and the spotlight will be on those state leaders generating some 2016 presidential buzz. Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Maryland's Democratic Governor Martin O'Malley are among the potential White House contenders taking part. Republican Texas Governor Rick Perry will also be in Washington, DC for the meeting. He launched a failed 2012 bid for the Oval Office and there's plenty of speculation he'll give it another go.
