Donald Trump Reels in Chris Christie's Endorsement
At a media event in Texas on Friday, businessman Donald Trump unveiled a major endorsement as Gov. Chris Christie, R-NJ, backed him.
“It is my great honor to receive the endorsement of the governor,” Trump said. “We have had a wonderful relationship for many years. He is a solid person that I have tremendous respect for. I am really proud to receive the support of the governor and his family.”
“Donald is a leader,” Christie said. “He is a successful person that, like me, isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. Our system is broken and it won’t be fixed from the inside. I am proud to offer my endorsement of his candidacy for president.”
Christie had been running for president but a sixth place showing in New Hampshire ended his campaign. In his final debate, Christie took aim at U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who looks like Trump’s main competitor for the Republican nod. Christie chaired the Republican Governors Association (RGA) during the 2014 election cycle.
