TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Was that really Chris Christie, the take-a-back-seat-to-no-one governor of New Jersey?

Christie’s seemingly shell-shocked gaze as he stood behind Donald Trump on Super Tuesday is generating befuddlement and mockery in his home state and beyond.

Conservatives and liberals alike have piled on.

To some, the usually tough-talking Christie looked like a hostage. Others said he looked almost sad having to play second fiddle to Trump.

Christie says he is backing Trump because he’s a winner and has the best chance of beating Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.
