Maine Gov. Paul LePage took a tour through snowy New Hampshire Friday by the side of presidential hopeful and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
In the wood-beamed loft of a family-style restaurant in Dover, New Hampshire, LePage told the audience of 100 or so his support for Christie was based on some clear factors.
“One is I trust him,” he says. “Two, he has been tried and proven to be able to handle difficult decisions. He was marvelous right after 9/11. He became U.S. attorney. He prosecuted the terrorists. He has been there, he’s done it, he’s made the tough decisions.”
