Chris Christie is standing by Maine Gov. Paul LePage who recently apologized for racially charged remarks he made about drug dealers impregnating white women, NBC News reported.
Christie acknowledged the comments were offensive, but said that LePage genuinely apologized.
"He's apologized," Christie told Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski in an interview set to air Monday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
LePage said out-of-state drug dealers with names like “D-Money” come to Maine and “half the time they impregnate a young white girl.”
LePage is a Christie supporter who campaigned with the presidential candidate in New Hampshire.
