Chris Christie endorses Donald Trump

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie announced his endorsement of Donald Trump Friday during the Republican frontrunner's "mega-rally" in Fort Worth, Texas. Christie told the audience of over 8,000 that Trump "will do exactly what needs to be done to make America a leader around the world again."

The endorsement comes at a key time for Trump, just days before Super Tuesday on March 1, and after a pummeling by Marco Rubio at the Thursday night debate.

"This is the one endorsement I felt strongly about and wanted to get," Trump said.
