New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is now competing with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio for second place in New Hampshire, according to a new poll of Republicans in the Granite State.
The two GOP presidential hopefuls are in a dead heat for the No. 2 spot, earning 11 percent support each in WBUR's latest survey of New Hampshire Republicans. They remain behind Donald Trump, who's expanded his lead by 5 percentage points since November and now stands at 27 percent support.
According to one local TV station's candidate tracker, Christie has spent more than four times as many days campaigning in New Hampshire than his closest competitor, Rubio, and has been there three times as often as Trump.
While Rubio's been a top-tier contender in the state since late October, Christie's numbers just recently began hinting at a comeback.
