Here’s where your GOP race stands with two months to go: Trump (after the Paris terrorist attacks) is leading in almost every poll; Ted Cruz is rising; Ben Carson is dropping; Marco Rubio remains in double digits; and Jeb Bush is stuck in the single digits.

Chris Christie has won the endorsement of the New Hampshire Union Leader, giving the 2016 GOP presidential candidate a big boost in a state shaping up to be crucial to his White House aspirations. Christie is currently tied for sixth place with former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina at 4 percent among the candidates for the 2016 Republican nomination in the most recent Boston Globe/Suffolk University poll in the first-in-the-nation primary state. The governor was endorsed over the weekend by the influential New Hampshire Union-Leader, which called the governor “a solid, pro-life conservative who has managed to govern in liberal New Jersey, face down the big public unions, and win a second term.” Christie will start Monday with a noontime business round table luncheon at the Pease International Tradeport in Portsmouth, hosted by real estate developers Renee and Dan Plummer. Christie “is the one candidate who has the range and type of experience the nation desperately needs.” “We don’t need another fast-talking, well-meaning freshman U.S. senator trying to run the government,” Mr. O’Malley’s 3-stop tour comes after his speech Sunday night at the state Democratic party’s annual dinner.

McQuaid, the paper’s publisher, said Christie’s straight-shooting style and executive experience are needed for the “dangerous times” facing Americans. “If there’s an insider who’s an outsider, it’s Christie,” McQuaid told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “He’s a Jersey guy who shoots from the lip, but he knows what he’s talking about. On Tuesday, which will mark Christie’s 50th day campaigning in the state, will start with an appearance at Janie’s Uncommon Cafe in Londonderry to greet voters as they munch their toast and morning coffee.

But today’s biggest political story isn’t playing out on the 2016 campaign trail; it’s taking place in Paris. “Some 150 world leaders including President Barack Obama joined U.N. He’ll then be appearing as a guest on local ABC affiliate WMUR’s “candidate cafe” segment, taped before voters at the Manchester Airport Diner before returning to Concord to host a drug recovery round table discussion. John McCain, the paper’s 2008 pick, did. “Gingrich blew it” by not focusing on New Hampshire enough, Cullen said. “But (the endorsement) was a high point for McCain’s campaign, and marked his resurgence. The themes of law and order and drug reform have been the hallmarks of Christie’s campaign, particularly in New Hampshire, which is in the grip of an opiate epidemic. Environmental activists hope that the images from the United Nations conference will send a powerful message of unity on the issue of global warming,” NBC’s Rachel Witkin and Halimah Abdullah write.
