Might Chris Christie have just received the endorsement he needs to move ahead in the polls and become the Republican nominee for President of the United States?
But the New Jersey Governor did just hang out with Chris Soules.
The unexpected meeting took place on Thursday night in Soules’ home state of Iowa, where Christie and his fellow Republicans have been spending a lot of time in anticipation of Monday’s Caucus.
In the photo, Soules is sandwiched between Christie and his wife Mary Pat.
“Grt 2 have IA’s @souleschris support us. Looks like we made it to final rose ceremony," Christie wrote as a somewhat humorous caption, tagging beloved Bachelor host Chris Harrison in the message.
"Ok this is pretty funny," Harrison wrote in response.
As those who watch The Bachelor online know, Soules (who has shown allegiance to the Republican party in the past) proposed to Whitney Bischoff at the end of his season’s run last year.
Their engagement ended in May, though.
Christie, meanwhile, still has a long way to go before he catches up with Hillary Clinton in the celebrity endorsement/photo game.
Granted, we’re not really sure of those latter photos helped or her Clinton’s chances.
And if Christie promises right now to make Harrison his Vice Presidential running mate, then we’re in. He totally has our vote.
