Chris Christie is no longer running for President.
He dropped his longshot campaign earlier today.
Chris Christie is ending his longshot presidential campaign in what could be a major boost to Nikki Haley’s chances in New Hampshire.
“I would rather lose by telling the truth than lie in order to win,” Christie told supporters in Windham, New Hampshire, on Wednesday. “It’s clear to me tonight that there isn’t a path for me to win the nomination, which is why I’m suspending my campaign tonight.”
The former New Jersey governor has been the GOP field’s most vocal critic of frontrunner Donald Trump and had staked his campaign on the first primary state.
But his path there narrowed as Haley started surging in polls on the heels of several strong debate performances and with the backing of popular GOP Gov. Chris Sununu, who also opposes Trump.
Donald Trump reacted to the news on Truth Social.
He also reacted to Christie’s hot mic incident in which he says Nikki Haley was going to get “smoked” by Trump in the primary.
I hear Chris Christie is dropping out of the race today — I might even get to like him again! Anyway, he was just caught on a hot mic making a very truthful statement: “She’s gonna get smoked…You and I both know it, she’s not up to this.”
Nikki Haley is losing in the Polls to Biden everywhere, except one very early, very FAKE poll, that she uses to a fair the Welle. I am beating Crooked Joe in every current poll!
Here is the audio:
