Speaking in at Elmhurst College in Elmhurst, Illinois, Christie told the crowd, “Governor Romney needs to show our party and our country that he’s not only competing everywhere that he can win everywhere” and that he is the best candidate to deal with the economy according to the Washington Post.

The Governor called Romney the best candidate to bring Republicans & Democrats in Congress together but took a shot at opponents Newt Gingrich & Rick Santorum when he said, “Let’s be wary about sending another member of Congress to the White House.”

Christie also leveled criticism at President Obama. “Do we really want a failure in the White House?” He said what he personally doesn’t want is a community organizer, which President Obama was in his youth.

Christie called himself an inherent optimist about the future of the country and then, surveying the crowd, said he spotted another optimist. “He’s wearing a Cubs T-shirt,” Christie said, as he quickly added, “I have a heart and I can empathize. I’m a Mets fan. We’re worse off than you are.” As some in the crowd began to boo, he quipped, “It’s okay to boo… we stink anyway.”
