Chris Christie Returns to New Jersey as Campaign Likely Over
CBS – Headed toward a sixth place finish in the New Hampshire Republican primary, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he and his family plan to head home Wednesday to “make a decision on our next step forward” instead of continuing straight to South Carolina.
“We’re going to take a deep breath see what the final results are tomorrow…because so many New Hampshire residents came out to vote today, it’s going to take a while to count these votes so we want to see exactly what happens,” Christie said. “By tomorrow morning, tomorrow afternoon, we should know…that’s going to allow us to make a decision about how we move from here in this race, but there’s no reason to go to sit in South Carolina in a hotel room to hear that.”
