Chris Christie launches ad featuring Shaquille O’Neal

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is up with a new campaign ad featuring former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal.

"I don’t endorse many politicians. But Chris Christie is different," O'Neal, a Newark native, says in the ad. "He’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: "He’s a good man. Excuse me, he’s a great man. Please join me in supporting Chris Christie – 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.
