WASHINGTON — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie endorsed Donald Trump’s presidential bid Friday at a press conference in Texas, saying there is no one better prepared to lead the country in the Republican 2016 race.

“It is my great honor to receive the endorsement of the Governor. We have had a wonderful relationship for many years. He is a solid person that I have tremendous respect for. I am really proud to receive the support of the Governor and his family,” Trump said after the endorsement.

Christie ended his own presidential bid earlier this month.

“Donald is a leader. He is a successful person that, like me, isn’t afraid to tell it like it is,” Christie said. “Our system is broken and it won’t be fixed from the inside. I am proud to offer my endorsement of his candidacy for President.”
