Chris Christie, New Jersey's Governor, has officially announced endorsing Mitt Romney for president. Not only is this an amazing endorsement because no one knew if he himself was going to run for president, but every republican candidate wanted his vote. In this article from nbcnewyork.com it talks about Christie and his decision.
Christie said last week that he would not be getting into the race for the Republican nomination, saying "now is not my time," but gave no indication an endorsement was coming soon. A senior Romney adviser told NBC News that Romney secured the endorsement on Saturday when he and his wife, Ann, met with Christie and his wife, Mary Pat, at the Christie home.
