Gov. Chris Christie ends his presidential campaign

Gov. Chris Christie, the brash New Jersey Republican governor, suspended his presidential campaign on Wednesday, saying his standing in the pools was "just not enough" to justify continuing on. Christie finished a disappointing sixth in Tuesday's New Hampshire primary.

Christie spent 71 days campaigning in the Granite State. He had, what many thought, was his best debate performance just days before the primary, flustering rival Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) into robotic repetition by criticizing his lack of experience in office. After all that, Christie garnered only 7 percent of the vote.
