Christie says Trump midterm endorsements won’t be ‘determinative’

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Sunday said former President Trump’s endorsements in the upcoming midterm elections will not be “determinative.”

Asked by anchor George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” what role Trump’s endorsements will play in November’s midterm races, Christie said they will “always be a factor” because of the ex-president’s influence in the Republican Party but argued that they will not always determine the outcomes.

“It will always be a factor because the former president has influence inside the party, but I don’t believe his endorsements will be determinative,” Christie said.

Trump has endorsed a number of GOP candidates running in November, most recently throwing his support behind “Hillbilly Elegy” author J.D. Vance in Ohio’s Republican primary for Senate.
