A certified Jersey guy has stepped up and endorsed Chris Christie in his bid for re-election to a second term as governor of the Garden State.
Shaquille O’Neal, who grew up near Newark, filmed a 90-second ad in which he says of Christie, “he’s a good man. Excuse me, he’s a great man.”
This isn’t the first time Shaq has spoken up for a politician. He endorsed President Obama’s re-election in 2012 and Carmen Trutanich in the Los Angeles district attorney’s race. As the New York Daily News points out, he’s 1-for-2 at the endorsement game, which is “worse than his career 52.7 percent mark from the free throw line.”
