Why Christie's Willing to Stand There Behind Trump

All jokes aside, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie didn't become the chairman of Donald Trump's presidential transition team in order to handle the presumptive Republican nominee's dry cleaning. With further Bridgegate issues mounting, Christie is putting his chips in the Trump camp for a reason.

WNYC's senior editor for Politics & Policy Andrea Bernstein and Matt Katz, WNYC and New Jersey Public Radio reporter and author of American Governor: Chris Christie's Bridge to Redemption (Threshold Editions, 2016), discuss the latest news surrounding Christie, Trump, and the Democratic presidential race.
