As noted in US news sites that day, Governor Christie endorsed former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney in a surprise appearance in New Hampshire press conference with him.

Apparently, Christie’s announcement came only hours before a debate among the Republican candidates being set to happen at Dartmouth College, a nearby school.

Christie, 49, who recently announced that he will not run for president in 2012, noted that Romney will be the best person to lead the country and not President Barack Obama.

“America cannot survive another four years of Barack Obama,” Christie was quoted on reports, adding that endorsing Romney was an “easy decision” for him.

Romney, 64, will be among the eight Republican presidential hopefuls to join the Dartmouth College debate, which is being sponsored by Bloomberg News and the Washington Post.

The seven other Republican presidential aspirants included in the said debate are Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Ron Paul, Jon Huntsman, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, and Michele Bachmann, with the topic involving the US economy, among others.

The Republican Presidential Debate is being set to start at around 8 p.m. (local time) and will be broadcast live in various digital platforms and local TV stations such as WBIN-TV.
