Chris Christie, governor of New Jersey has endorsed Donald Trump for president this morning.
Christie was a candidate himself, until he dropped out of the race after finishing in sixth place at the New Hampshire primary.
To me, it's a very big endorsement,
Trump told the reporters before a rally in Fort Worth, Texas.
Christie, standing with Trump, said he is the Republican best suited to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in November's election.
Happy to be on the Trump team,

Christie: "Donald Trump is someone who, when he makes a promise, he keeps it." So what did he promise?
