New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie will endorse Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Tuesday, Fox News reports.

His formal endorsement will be made in Hanover, N.H. before the Republican presidential debate that will be held Tuesday night. 

The announcement comes a exactly one week after Christie's announcement last week that he will not run for president. Christie, who had repeatedly said that he wouldn't run for president, admitted last week that he had been considering a late entrance into the race, because of the encouragement he had received from others.

However, Christie explained that he had too much to take care of in his home state.
