    Chris Christie will suspend his presidential campaign following a disappointing finish in Tuesday's New Hampshire primary, according to CBS News and The New York Times.

    Christie hinted at his plans after finishing sixth in the primary won by Donald Trump, telling supporters Tuesday night he would return to his home on Wednesday to assess the future of his campaign.

    "It's both the magic and the mystery of politics that you never quite know which is going to happen, even when you think you do," Christie said.

    The New Jersey governor stressed counter-terrorism and the need to rein in entitlement spending during his campaign but could not break through the large pack chasing front-runner and New Hampshire winner Donald Trump.

    New Jersey issues dogged Christie as well, including the so-called "Bridgegate" scandal. Aides once closed part of the George Washington Bridge, creating a massive traffic jam in a city where a mayor had opposed Christie. The governor denied authorizing the incident and fired aides who were involved.

    Throughout the campaign, Christie stressed his executive experience as governor as well as his years as a federal prosecutor. He argued that governors make better presidents than senators (like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz) or business people (like Trump).

    The Saturday debate in Manchester provided a high point for Christie, as the governor earned strong reviews for his attacks on Rubio's lack of experience and the Florida senator's repetitive, robotic answers to questions.

    However, Christie's debate ambush of Rubio did not ultimately seem to help him at the New Hampshire polls, and also triggered blowback from some conservatives.

    "Chris Christie, suicide bomber," tweeted News Corp chairman Rupert Murdoch. "Damages victim while blowing himself up!"

    It was clear him and Rubio were vying for oil company backing. Rubio won.

    Cue the fat jokes from the leftist frauds that preach diversity and tolerance. These fucks would be the first to cry if their kid was being bullied for being fat, but if you have different political beliefs than they do, anything goes.

    Jokes aside Christie seemed more of a human being than most of the field, but a lot of people around the rest of the country are turned off by the in your face Jersey guy demeanor.

    I figured he would be part of the final four on the GOP side.
    Now I guess he's coming back to NJ. Not sure that's a good thing.
