On the heels of the New Hampshire primary, another GOP candidate has announced that he is suspending his presidential campaign.
Chris Christie is reportedly suspending his campaign after doing poorly in the Granite State. According to the Daily Mail, Christie cancelled his only engagement in South Carolina.
The outlet reported:
Christie had been due at a forum on legal and constitutional issues in Charleston today but will no longer attend, Brielle Applebaum of the Conservative Leadership Project said.
The governor told supporters after his disappointing finish in Tuesday night’s New Hampshire primary that he was going home to New Jersey to ‘take a deep breath’ and assess what comes next.
Donald Trump, the front-runner and Granite State victor, said he had had a ‘long talk’ with Christie last night and the two discussed the idea of the governor getting out of the contest.
Interesting, that Christie and Trump discussed the decision.
Perhaps Trump promised the New Jersey governor something in return if he dropped out and endorsed him. Perhaps a cabinet position?
Trump said, “Chris did an amazing job in terms of the debate, as a prosecutor, and he’s a friend of mine. And he actually called me last night, and we had a long talk, and he’s a little disappointed because he really did do a great job, he did an amazing job during that debate.”
