Christie Calls Endorsement of Romney an "Easy Decision"

Chris Christie officially endorses Mitt Romney Tuesday.

While Gov. Chris Christie won't be running for President in 2012, he has dubbed Gov. Mitt Romney as the most capable candidate to enter the Oval Office.

At a news conference in New Hampshire Tuesday, Christie expressed his confidence in Romney, citing Romney's business background in the private sector and his experience governing Massachusetts.

"It's been really, in the end, an easy decision for me. I know that America needs a new course and I want it to be with the person whom I believe will be the best person to lead America on that course, and that is Gov. Mitt Romney," said Christie.

Christie made it clear that he does not want to see the Obama Administration take a second term.

"America cannot survive another four years of Barack Obama," said Christie.

Christie also expressed his concern about candidates who are just "legislator[s] trying to figure out how to use executive power," instead of using executive power to "make american lives better."

"Mitt Romney is the man we need to lead America and we need him now," Christie said amidst cheers and applause.
