TRENTON – Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney lost his bid for the White House, but it wasn’t because of a lack of campaign efforts on his behalf by Gov. Chris Christie, the administration argued Wednesday.

The governor told reporters a day after Election Day that he worked hard to get the former Massachusetts governor to the White House, saying he was “extraordinarily disappointed” when it became clear that President Barack Obama clinched a second term.

Christie attended at least 20 rallies and fundraising events for Romney in 2012, and boasted helping raise millions of dollars for the Republican’s campaign.

With the Romney loss, we thought we'd see what Christie's star power brought to the elections he jumped into.

All in all a total of seven of the 20 candidates Christie stumped for won their election Tuesday with two others that are too close to call.

Here’s a look at the candidates across the nation Christie campaigned for by attending rallies or fundraising events. The bolded candidates either won their respective race or are the projected winners.

 

- North Carolina gubernatorial candidate Pat McCrory (Sept. 13 and Oct. 26) PROJECTED WINNER

- New Jersey U.S. Senate candidate Joe Kyrillos (Oct. 15 and 23) LOST
