Hillary Clinton has a theory on why Chris Christie endorsed Donald Trump…

According to The Hill:

Hillary Clinton on late Monday speculated that Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) may have endorsed GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump  because he owes “a debt.”

“Why would, why did he support him?” Clinton asked MSNBC host Chris Matthews during a town hall in Springfield, Ill., in an exchange caught by a hot mic, according to The Washington Post.

“They all want a future,” Matthews responded. “Christie’s not going to beat [New Jersey Sen.] Cory Booker.”“Did he have a debt or something?” asked Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner.

“Cory Booker’s not going anywhere,” Matthews responded of Christie’s future in New Jersey. “There’s nowhere for Christie to go. Unless [Sen. Bob] Menendez has to go.”

Clinton and Matthews then concluded that Christie’s political future in New Jersey looks grim after suspending his GOP presidential campaign last month.”
