MANCHESTER – During the question and answer session of a Manchester town hall meeting this afternoon, Gov. Chris Christie said that Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney should look past the competing Republicans and set his sights on the White House.
A member of the public asked Christie how the national Republican Party could stop the infighting during the primaries and unite before the election against President Barack Obama.
Christie said he would tell Romney to “ignore the other guys” and focus on the November election.
“I stand with him,” Christie said. “I’m going to work hard for him. If the country stops and really listens over the next seven months, he’s going to be the 45th president of the United States.”
Christie has travelled across the country campaigning for Romney after deciding that he would not seek the presidency.
