Atlanta could probably claim Shaquille O'Neal as our own these days (he's been spotted here and here and here and here) but he's a Jersey guy.
Now the Newark native is getting into politics in his home state, endorsing New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's reelection bid.
"I don't endorse many politicians," O'Neal says in a new campaign ad. "But Chris Christie is different. He's working with me to bring jobs back to our cities and on a new program to help kids from tough neighborhoods get ahead."
See the entire ad here:
Christie has posted a number of comments about O'Neal on his Twitter page.
"Hanging out with @Shaq is one of the few things that I do as Governor that makes my kids think I’m actually cool," Christie tweeted recently when the two paired up for a Boys and Girls Club event.
