Christie Joins Mitt Romney in Iowa [VIDEO]
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie came out swinging for Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney during a Friday morning campaign appearance in West Des Moines, Iowa.
Christie made a “threat” to the crowd if they don’t support Romney in Tuesday’s Iowa caucus. “You people disappoint me on Tuesday, you don’t do what you’re supposed to do for Mitt Romney, I will be back Jersey-style people,” Christie said according to the National Journal. “But I’d much rather come back to Iowa this fall to campaign for Mitt Romney and to help you help him to lead this country.”
“There is no person better qualified by his experience and his character to take on President Obama and lead the United States of America than Mitt Romney,” said the Governor who stated his belief that Romney will ultimately win the Presidential race during a segment with Eric Scott on New Jersey 101.5’s Jim Gearhart Show on Thursday.
Christie urged voters to listen to “stories” President Obama will tell during the campaign. “The president is going to be out here and try to tell you that America is doing better. And we know that’s not true,” Christie said. “After three years of Obama, we are hopeless and changeless, and we need Mitt Romney to bring America back.”
The Romney campaign has a full schedule for Christie with events today in Cedar Rapids and Dubuque according to the campaign’s website.
