Christie picks up sixth congressional endorsement

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie earned his sixth congressional endorsement when Rep. Susan Brooks of Indiana pledged her support on Friday.

He has the second-most congressional endorsements of any GOP presidential candidate not actively serving in the U.S. Congress, and trails only Jeb Bush who has 29 congressional endorsements.

Brooks shares a similar past with Christie, as they both are former U.S. attorneys.

"As the threat of ISIS continues to grow, America needs a strong, experienced leader who will put our country's safety and security first," Brooks said in a statement shared by the Christie campaign. "As a former U.S. Attorney, I know Governor Christie has the background to stand behind our law enforcement and support the necessary programs to ensure the safety and security of the American people."
