Following his poor showing in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced that he is dropping out of the presidential race.
Christie came in a disappointing sixth place in New Hampshire at only 7.4% of the vote, after spending $18.5 million in the state, second only to Jeb Bush’s $36 million.
FOX Business made Christie’s announcement public on Twitter, stating “Chris Christie is suspending his campaign.”
Following last night’s crushing defeat, Christie said he and his wife were returning to New Jersey to reassess the future of his campaign.
It did not take long for him to make a decision.
Christie’s sixth place finish disallowed him from qualifying for the next GOP presidential debate on Saturday.
It remains to be seen who will receive Christie’s support, however, it would seem that much of it will be split between fellow RINO governors (former in Bush’s case), Jeb Bush and John Kasich.
