(WTVR) – New Jersey Governor Chris Christie picked up a big endorsement in his re-election bid.

Former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal stars in a new campaign ad for the Republican governor.  In the ad, the Newark, New Jersey native praised Christie for his economic and education policies.

While the endorsement may seem unusual, this isn’t the first for Shaq.  He endorsed President Obama for re-election in 2011.
