|Chris Christie bucks Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, John Kasich and Ben Carson by endorsing Donald Trump for president.|
"I am proud to endorse Donald Trump for president", says Chris Christie.
Christie, the current governor of New Jersey fought Donald Trump while he was running on the stage. Christie at first thought Trump was a joke. He said that Trump's policies aren't tested and we don't want a sideshow as our president.
I guess now he's having second thoughts. Or perhaps this is Christie's retribution against Rubio after he played dirty bull in the New Hampshire primary.
Trump had brought Christie to his press conference in Fort Worth, Texas. The governor said that Trump is the only candidate capable of beating Hillary Clinton.
This is a shocking announcement given that Christie is part of the establishment after he embraced President Barack Obama during his handling of Hurricane Sandy.
Many Republicans blamed Christie for ruining perennial loser Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.
Christie is not well liked in his state. Despite landsliding his Democratic opponent in a state that trends even more Democratic, Christie pulled in Black and Hispanic voters. Christie who once had the halo over his head is now heading back to Trenton with his tail in between his legs.
Christie bowing out was a blow to the establishment. With Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Scott Walker and Rick Perry out the race, there's no candidate outside of John Kasich capable of mending the Republican Party together.
