What is your opinion about Chris Christie endorsing Mitt Romney?

Expert Answers

My opinion about this is that it is no surprise.  Chris Christie is from the more "mainstream" wing of the Republican Party and Mitt Romney is the primary candidate most acceptable to that wing.

Right now, the Republican primaries seem to be boiling down to a contest between a mainstream or "establishment" candidate (probably Romney) and a more conservative candidate more palatable to the Tea Party (probably Gov. Rick Perry of Texas).  Since Christie is more of an establishment Republican, it makes sense that he would endorse Romney rather than one of the more conservative candidates in the race right now.
