Chris Christie Suspends His Presidential Campaign — 'The Bully' Was Out Bullied by Donald Trump

Governor Chris Christie's bullying ways may have led to his undoing when members of his staff   punished a local mayor for not endorsing Christie: his staff closed traffic lanes to that mayor's city, causing huge traffic jams and endangering lives. An investigation of Christie over the incident continues.

Chris Christie suspends his presidential campaign


By Robert Costa and David A. Fahrenthold
Chris Christie — the brash New Jersey governor whose fast rise in Republican politics was undone by a petty scheme to clog traffic on a bridge — has decided to suspend his presidential campaign, according to two Republicans briefed on his deliberations.

Christie held a meeting and conference call with campaign staff at 4 p.m. to inform them of his decision, the Republicans said.

Christie finished sixth in Tuesday’s primary in New Hampshire, the state on which he had pinned his last presidential hopes. Christie spent 71 days campaigning in the Granite State, and he had his best debate here 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.

“I have both won elections that I was supposed to lose, and I’ve lost elections I was supposed to win. And what that means is you never know,” Christie told supporters in Nashua, N.H., on Tuesday night. He said then that he would return to New Jersey before making a decision about his future.

Christie’s short-lived run for the presidency was a remarkable turnabout for a corruption-busting federal prosecutor who was elected governor in 2009. He quickly made a name by battling the state’s public-sector unions and engaging in well-publicized shouting matches at public meetings that became YouTube sensations.
