A big political domino falls in the race for President.
“The best person to beat Hillary Clinton in November on that stage last night is undoubtedly Donald Trump” said New Jersey Governor and one-time Republican Presidential Hopeful Christ Christie during a surprise appearance in Fort Worth late Friday Morning.
Christie also used the appearance to take shots at Trump’s two main remaining rivals for the Republican Presidential Nomination: Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio–saying Bill and Hillary Clinton would like to run most against either in November.
“They know how to run the standard political playbook against junior Senators–and run them around the block” Christie said, adding “They do not know the playbook with Donald Trump, because he’s re-writing the playbook.”
The endorsement comes hours after Thursday Night’s Republican Presidential Candidate debate in Houston–which many political watchers said was a good night for both Rubio and Cruz.
