Chris Christie Gets Support From Chris Soules In Iowa — SEE PHOTO!
Christie was in the former “Bachelor” star’s home state this week for the GOP debate, which took place at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines. It’s unclear if Soules, who has shown allegiance to the Republican party locally in the past, was at the event on Thursday night, or if he met Christie in town on Friday. The presidential candidate shared a picture of the run-in on Friday morning.
In the photo, Soules is sandwiched between Christie and his wife Mary Pat. The New Jersey governor captioned the snapshot, “Grt 2 have IA’s @souleschris support us. Looks like we made it to final rose ceremony.” He tagged “Bachelor” host Chris Harrison, who replied, “Ok this is pretty funny.”
Soules hasn’t yet mentioned the encounter on his own social media pages. It’s possible the former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant is preoccupied with a legal matter. As Gossip Cop reported on Tuesday, Soules is suing the online dating service FarmersOnly for allegedly using his “persona” in an ad without permission, even though he isn’t actually mentioned by name and no photo of him appears.
Soules’ complaint claims he’s “one of the most famous celebrities in the United States.” And now he’s met one of the famous men running for president. Check out the photo below!
UPDATE: Soules tweeted to Harrison on Friday afternoon, “I’m still undecided, going hit up the caucus for the first time before commit. Will have to DVR #TheBachelor.” Harrison then told followers, “Breaking News: @souleschris says he’s undecided where he will lay his caucus support but that he will indeed take in the caucus Monday.”
