Donald Trump Gets Chris Christie Endorsement

As first reported by the New York Times  Donald Trump landed the endorsement of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie today at an event in Ft. Worth, Texas.

At the beginning of the 2016 GOP campaign Christie was considered a real contender for the nomination. But after a poor showing in New Hampshire, he suspended his campaign operation.

Today however he stunned many by coming out supporting Trump over other more established members of the field.

He’s been my friend for many years, he’s been a spectacular governor,” said Trump, standing with Christie at a press conference in Fort Worth, Texas. “I am proud to be here to endorse Donald Trump,” said Christie, noting they have been friends for a decade. Trump “will do exactly what needs to be done to make America a leader around the world again,” said Christie.



Meanwhile, the dust has settled at the University of Houston after last night’s GOP debate on CNN. It marked the first time in 10 debates that both Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz ganged up on the frontrunner Donald Trump.

While, many feel that Rubio won the debate and that Cruz scored some points, Trump remained standing as everyone heads into Super Tuesday. As a matter of fact the two polls that do post debate online reaction both proved that Trump’s support never wavers.


Which is good news for the man who leads the field going into the Super Tuesday, when 11 states including a head to head showdown in Texas with native son Cruz the days highlight. According to a Drudge Report survey that has attracted more than 120,000 votes, 63.8 percent said Trump won the debate, followed Ted Cruz, at 17.9 percent, Marco Rubio, at 12.8 percent, John Kasich, at 3.6 percent, and Ben Carson, at 2 percent.

A Time magazine online poll of 17,000 people felt that Trump was the big winner taking 71 percent, followed by Rubio, at 18 percent, Kasich, at 6 percent, Cruz, at 4 percent, and Carson, at 2 percent. The surveys aren’t scientific but can gauge online enthusiasm for the candidates.
