Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie has landed a new gig: He's headed to ABC News!

Christie, who ran against President Trump as a Republican candidate in the 2016 election, reportedly got the job "because he is close to the president and the players inside the White House," claims NJ.com.
His relationship to Trump and the administration might prove useful as ABC plans their coverage for the midterm elections. But first, Christie will be providing commentary on Tuesday night's State of the Union address.
Stay tuned to this one!
