New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Friday warned Iowa voters to choose wisely in next week’s GOP caucus.
Christie, who was on the campaign trail stumping for Mitt Romney, told a crowd in West Des Moines, Iowa, that if the state’s Republican voters disappoint him, he will be back — “Jersey-style.”
“New Jersey’s watching you too, we’re watching you really closely,” Christie said at the event.
“I’m in a good mood this morning. I’m feeling happy and upbeat. I love being with Mitt and Ann, but let me tell you: You people disappoint me on Tuesday, you don’t do what you’re supposed to do on Tuesday for Mitt Romney, I will be back — Jersey-style, people.”
Christie, who repeatedly declined to enter the Republican contest himself amid incessant speculation, announced his endorsement of Romney this fall.
“I’d much rather come back to Iowa this fall … to campaign for Mitt Romney and to help you help him lead this country,” he added at the Friday event.
The Iowa caucus takes place Tuesday.
