TRENTON - Gov. Chris Christie called Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich an 'embarrassment to his party' on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday morning.

The governor also downplayed Gingrich's victory in South Carolina.

Gingrich took 40 percent of the vote compared to Romney's 28 percent.

Christie said Romney would still be the nominee, and that Florida, the next state to vote, could put momentum behind him again.
