New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is up with a new campaign ad featuring former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal.
"I donâ€™t endorse many politicians. But Chris Christie is different," O'Neal, a Newark native, says in the ad. "Heâ€™s working with me to bring jobs back to our cities and on a new program to help kids in tough neighborhoods get ahead."
O'Neal adds: "Heâ€™s a good man. Excuse me, heâ€™s a great man. Please join me in supporting Chris Christie â€“ the Governor."
O'Neal recently joined Christie to launch an after-school program in Camden, N.J.
Christie faces reelection next week. Polls show Christie with a huge lead on Democrat Barbara Buono.
