Christie endorses Trump for president; ‘Wow,’ Trump says

Republican front-runner Donald Trump won the backing of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, himself a former presidential candidate, on Friday in a jolt to one of the wildest primary contests in recent memory. Christie is one of the first establishment Republicans to endorse Trump in a nominating race where many in the party have been distressed by the billionaire New York businessman’s campaign tactics and policy proposals. “I’m happy to be on the Trump team and look forward to working with him,” Christie said at a Trump news conference in Texas. Trump shared his reaction when Christie notified his campaign: “I said, ‘Wow, this is really important.'”
