Want to know just how craven and desperate Christie’s endorsement of Trump was? He apparently did it without even consulting his most trusted advisors:

Back in New Jersey, county GOP leaders were taken aback because they were supposed to meet with Christie this week, when they expected to talk about possible endorsements. They were also starting to coalesce around Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, whom Christie harbors personal disdain for (the New York Times reported Christie thought Rubio was disrespectful to him in a recent voicemail message).

So Christie didn’t want to back Rubio and he needed to act fast — supporting Trump before Super Tuesday, which could propel the candidate to the nomination, maximizes the value of an endorsement.
