NJ Gov. Christie Endorses Donald Trump

At a press conference in Fort Worth, Texas, former 2016 candidate and current New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has endorsed Donald Trump for president. Christie described Trump as a man who keeps his promises, a strong leader, and someone who is rewriting the political playbook that isn’t dependent on the status quo. He called the billionaire the best person to beat Hillary Clinton in the general, and will do everything he can to help Donald Trump.

In closing, Christie said he’s happy to be o the Trump team.

Needless to say, this endorsement is a bit odd:

We'll see if this story overtakes Trump's shellacking during last night's debate. If it does, it once again proves that he masters the media, which he's done since the beginning of his candidacy.

UPDATE: CNN's Jake Tapper offers reasons for Christie endorsement.
