MORRISTOWN, NJ - Following Governor Christie's strong performance in the last Republican Presidential debate and a number of polls showing his support growing in New Hampshire, influential Conservative radio show host, columnist and activist Jeff Chidester endorsed Chris Christie for President of the United States today.
"There is no doubt in my mind that Chris Christie is exactly the conservative leader that our nation needs in these dark and dangerous times," commented Chidester. A former community police officer in Dover and a U.S. Army Veteran, he added, "Governor Christie's conservative record of reform in New Jersey, combined with his detailed plans to improve America's financial and national security make him the best qualified candidate for President of the United States. After years of weakness in the Oval Office, it will take a strong, tough leader like Governor Christie to ensure that America is safe and secure from threats at home and abroad."
Chidester will join Governor Christie in person at his town hall meeting at the Stratham Municipal Center on Saturday.
