candidate chris christie received the endorsement of "the new hampshire union leader," a coveted prize for any conservative candidate. the publisher called christie right for these dangerous times and pointed to his accomplishments as a u.s. attorney and governor as reasons for giving him the nod over the rest of the field. thanks for being here to put this in context. what could this endorsement do for governor christie and what can he do with it? >> against governor christie a reason to fight on. this caps off what has been an up-and-down month for him. he got kicked off the national debate stage because of low poll numbers. but his constant politicking in new hampshire is paying off with national media stories about how he seems to be gaining traction. now it topped off with this endorsement. his investors in his campaign, he can say it is paying off. give me 10 more weeks to prove what i can do.

5:15 pm
the puts them in the shadows. even though christie is only a 4%, donald trump is just in the 20%-20 5% himself, so he is reachable. 10 weeks is going to be a lifetime because a lot of voters have not decided. adam: it is not just this one endorsement. they can continue on the editorial page to boost christie and attack other candidates. >> that will meet january interesting when voters start tuning in for preparation for voting in february. will they go after trump in editorials? adam: this does not name other names but does kick dirt on other candidates. it says we don' t need another fast talking senator trying to run the government. a dig at barack obama, ted cruz, and rand paul. >> it is a departure.
