NJ Gov. Christie backs Romney for president

HANOVER, N.H. - October 11, 2011

Romney called Christie a "hero" because of his record of cutting government spending as governor of New Jersey. Christie praised Romney as "the man we need to lead America."

Christie decided last week not to run for president, and his endorsement helps Romney solidify his support among establishment Republicans in his bid for the GOP nomination.
