Six New Jersey newspapers owned by newspaper conglomerate Gannett are calling on Gov. Chris Christie to step down because of his endorsement of Donald Trump in a joint editorial released before polls closed on Super Tuesday.

The surprise declaration comes in the wake of a contentious news conference Christie held with local reporters Monday, when he refused to talk about the GOP front-runner, reports USA Today, which is also a Gannett property.

"We’re fed up with Gov. Chris Christie’s arrogance," the joint editorial reads. "We’re fed up with his opportunism. We’re fed up with his hypocrisy."

"We’re disgusted with his endorsement of Donald Trump after he spent months on the campaign trail trashing him, calling him unqualified by temperament and experience to be president."

The newspapers are: Asbury Park Press, the Cherry Hill Courier-Post, the Daily Record in Morristown, the Home News Tribune in East Brunswick, The Daily Journal, Vineland and the Courier News in Bridgewater, all owned by Gannett.

Christie ended his presidential bid Feb 10 after a sixth-place finish in New Hampshire; the governor endorsed Trump last week.

The papers say Christie must "do his long-neglected constituents a favor and resign as governor," calling for a recall effort if he declines.
