New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie who is speaking tonight at the Republican National Convention has weighed in on Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s decision to not attend the convention.

In an interview with Cleveland WKYC’s Maureen Kyle Christie said he respected Kasich’s decision.

“I have great personal affection for Governor Kasich,” Christie said. “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. I was out here campaigning for him in 2010 and 2014. John is a person who makes his own judgments. He has the right to make his own judgments, those are his calls. He’s the governor of this state and a good friend, so it’s totally up to John.”
