Need To Know News: Christie speech fuels more speculation; Florida primary may move to January

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For September 28, 2011 – Christie's speech, Florida's primary, Murray (and Anthony) in court...

• New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's speech last night did not rule out a presidential run: "New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wouldn’t say definitively whether or not he was considering a run for the GOP presidential nomination Tuesday, instead referring audience members at a speech in California to an online video that compiles his past denials. Christie’s response was a stark contrast to past replies to the same question, which until now he has answered with a resounding “no.”

• Will the Florida primary move up in the calendar? Peter Hamby's exclusive: "Florida is now expected to hold its presidential primary on the last day in January 2012, a move likely to throw the carefully arranged Republican nominating calendar into disarray and jumpstart the nominating process a month earlier than party leaders had hoped. Florida House Speaker Dean Cannon told CNN on Tuesday that a state commission exploring potential primary dates is likely to choose January 31 to hold the nominating contest."

Where is Moammer Gadhafi? "Ousted Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi is believed to be hiding out near the western town of Ghadamis under the protection of Tuareg fighters, an interim government military spokesman told CNN Tuesday."

• Day two of the Conrad Murray trial begins today: "Michael Jackson's personal assistant is expected to testify Wednesday about the chaos inside the pop icon's bedroom in the minutes after Dr. Conrad Murray realized Jackson had stopped breathing. Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial began Tuesday with prosecutors playing a stunning audio recording of a drugged Jackson slurring his words weeks before his death and showing jurors a photo of Jackson's corpse on a hospital gurney."

• And speaking of trials – Casey Anthony's name is back in court today: "A Florida judge could decide Wednesday whether a controversial jailhouse videotape of Casey Anthony can be released to the public. The footage of Anthony reacting to the news that the remains of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee were found was sealed before her murder trial. A judge had ruled that the tape was "highly inflammatory."

    Michael Jackson was addicted to pharmaceutical drugs. Like any good addict he wanted a doctor that would get him what he wanted, no questions asked. Why do people find it so hard to believe that he hid this from his closet family and friends? I have abused pain medicine and built up a tolerance to it and it was EASY to act normal. Ms Hilton needs to get a clue.
