Chris Christie Reportedly Hired By ABC News as a Political Contributor

Chris Christie may not be governor of New Jersey anymore, but if you thought that would mean a quiet retirement for the outspoken Republican former politician, think again.

NJ Advance Media reports ABC News has hired Christie as a recurring network contributor, which will be formally announced on tomorrow’s Good Morning America.

Christie will be featured on ABC’s evening broadcast tomorrow, where he will give post-speech commentary on President Trump‘s State of the Union address. Christie has been a longtime associate of the president, and he led Trump’s White House transition team at one point.

From the report:

Christie was chosen because he is close to the president and the players inside the White House, a source said. ABC News is gearing up coverage for the midterm elections in Washington, and value his perspective on Trump voters.
