Baker set to endorse Christie ahead of New Hampshire primary

Republican presidential candidate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie greets a supporter during a snow storm at a campaign stop at the Strafford Farms Restaurant Friday Feb. 5 2016 in Dover N.H

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker Friday announced his endorsement for GOP presidential candidate Chris Christie, saying in an announcement that the United States needs "a strong and tested executive to lead our country, especially one who has been so effective leading a blue state with conservative reforms".

There has been no official announcement from either governor yet. Both Christie and Baker attended Bruce Springsteen's concert at the TD Garden in Boston Thursday night, though an aide said he was unsure whether the two men saw each other.

When Hogan was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma a year ago, Christie began wearing a lime-green wristband symbolizing the fight against that disease.

In the final WBUR poll before the New Hampshire primary, released Friday afternoon, Christie polls at just 6 percent, good for seventh place in the Republican contest. His solid record of getting results for the people of New Jersey while balancing every budget, cutting spending, vetoing more tax hikes than any Governor in American history, and creating over 230,000 private-sector jobs shows that he is ready to take on the serious challenges our next President will face.

Baker expressed concern about Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, who finished first and second, respectively, in Monday's Iowa caucuses.

Baker held out from an endorsement for some time, but has been critical particularly of Trump.

But he also singled out Trump and Cruz for their inability to do so, and questioned Trump's "sense of purpose" in government.

Baker will also campaign with Christie at a rally Saturday in Bedford, N.H. Christie made several trips to Maryland to campaign for Hogan during his campaign in 2014.
