Will Christie take his own advice?

(CNN) – On Election Day 2013, CNN Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper asked New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie how he would advise President Obama, who at the time was embroiled in a controversy about whether he misled the American people over being able to keep their health plans.

"Here's what my suggestion would be to him," Christie said then. "Don't be so cute. And when you make a mistake, admit it...Say, 'you know what? I said it, I was wrong. I'm sorry, and we're going to try to fix this and make it better.'"

Tapper, host of CNN's "The Lead," reports that sources close to Christie say people shouldn't be surprised if they see the governor take his own advice at a press conference scheduled for 11 a.m. ET.
