New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie offered his support to Israel on Saturday, as just one of several potential 2016 presidential candidates to speak before a group of powerful GOP donors.

At a Republican Jewish Coalition event in Las Vegas, Christie said he was overwhelmed by the strength of Israel’s leaders, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and said that many Israelis don’t believe they have the support of President Obama and his administration.

Israelis, Christie said, “want America to be their unblinking, unwavering, unquestioning friend.”

“You cannot live under that type of threat every day, and then also have to worry about whether your friends will stand up for you or not,” added Christie, who gave an extensive recounting of his recent trip to Israel with his family.

Another governor said to be eyeing the White House, Scott Walker of Wisconsin, spoke to the RJC before Christie, while Gov. John Kasich of Ohio is also scheduled to appear on Saturday.
