How Christie could help Haley if he dropped out

If Christie dropped out of the race, he could help Haley in a variety of ways. The most obvious one is that Haley would gain Christie’s endorsement, and with it, access to a larger pool of potential voters. He could use funds and staff from his campaign to bolster Haley’s, helping her expand her voter base and her on-the-ground organizational capacities. Christie could also deploy some of the combination of political sophistication and personal relationships he has built up over his career to help Haley develop a strategy to win the nomination. Finally, Christie could arrange for appearances and travel for Haley in areas where he has developed relationships with key political leaders andawakening media.
