2016 GOP Presidential candidate and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has been endorsed by the New Hampshire Union Leader, the “live free or die” state’s largest newspaper.
According to Politico:
“New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s campaign for the Republican nomination gained some traction late Saturday with an endorsement from New Hampshire’s Union Leader, traditionally the most respected newspaper voice in the first-in-the-nation primary state.
Citing his credentials as a U.S. attorney and a “big state governor,” the newspaper’s publisher Joseph McQuaid wrote that Christie was a “solid, pro-life conservative who has managed to govern in liberal New Jersey, face down the big public unions, and win a second term.”
“Gov. Christie is right for these dangerous times. He has prosecuted terrorists and dealt admirably with major disasters. But the one reason he may be best-suited to lead during these times is because he tells it like it is and isn’t shy about it,” the editorial continued.
“Gov. Chris Christie is exactly the conservative Republican needed to take the fight to Hillary Clinton next fall and then get about the serious business of defending us and rebuilding our economy.”
