The pairing of two powerhouses…
Governor Mitt Romney and Governor Chris Christie joined forces for an interview with Jamie Gangel (National Correspondent for the Today Show) in Lebanon, NH. The interview aired yesterday morning (10/12/11).
Gangel asked Christie why he endorsed Romney, their opinions on Rick Perry’s Pastor problem, and if Christie had been offered the VP title.
Gov. Christie on why he endorsed The Gov:
“He is the best person for the job. It’s simply on the merits. And the fact is that we need to make sure that Barack Obama’s a one-term president for America’s future. There’s no question in my mind that Gov. Romney’s the person who gives us the best chance of winning back the White House in November 2012. And I want to do everything I can to help him.”
Gangel: “What do you give his [Romney's] chances against Barack Obama?
Christie: “He’s gonna win.”
Gangel: “No questions about it…?”
Christie: “I wouldn’t be with him – if he wasn’t gonna win. He’s gonna win.”
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush isn’t quite ready to endorse a presidential candidate yet, but after the Bloomberg/Washington Post debate, he voiced praise for Romney:
“I continue to be impressed with Mitt Romney’s performance in these debates. He’s cool, calm, collected. He’s quick, he’s agile,” the former Florida governor told CNN’s Piers Morgan Wednesday. “I think he could do well going up against President Obama in the fall if he’s the nominee.“
