Moments Before Dropout, Christie Caught on a Hot Mic Trashing Another Candidate

UPDATE: Nikki Haley responds with this statement about Christie leaving the race:

“Chris Christie has been a friend for many years. I commend him on a hard-fought campaign. Voters have a clear choice in this election: the chaos and drama of the past or a new generation of conservative leadership. I will fight to earn every vote, so together we can build a strong and proud America.”

Ahead of his announcement, Christie was caught on a hot mic discussing the chances of rival candidate Nikki Haley.

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has officially dropped out of the 2024 race for the White House.

The former GOP presidential candidate made the announcement Wednesday afternoon just days before the Iowa caucuses Monday and less than two weeks before the New Hampshire primary on January 23.

“It’s clear to me tonight that there isn’t a path for me to win the nomination, which is why I’m suspending my campaign tonight for President of the United States,” Christie said to a room of supporters after trashing Donald Trump and remaining campaigns in the race.

Earlier in the day rumors swirled Christie was being urged by allies of Nikki Haley to drop out of the race in order to boost her chances in the Granite State. Haley has the endorsement of New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu and has been surging in the polls against former President Donald Trump. However, Christie has expressed skepticism about that taking that route.

“I would be happy to get out of the way for someone who is actually running against Donald Trump,” Christie said during a town hall in New Hampshire Tuesday. “Why do we think she’d beat him? She’s not trying to beat him,” said Christie “Let’s say I dropped out of the race right now and I supported Nikki Haley. And then three months from now, four months from now, when you’re ready to go to the convention, she comes out as his vice president. What will I look like? What will all the people who supported her at my behest look like?”

Christie hasn’t campaigned in Iowa.

    Nikita or whatever her name is will NEVER be our President. She is NOT surging past Trump. NO ONE is surging past Trump.

    Bloated pig needs to go home and shut the fuck up!

  • Wes says:

    Christie is a backstabbing politician. He’s not loyal to his party or supporting other candidates.

  • Nancy says:

    Chris Christie has always been a big cry baby. He was never going to win and now he’s going to trash everyone especially Trump. Why doesn’t he be a good Republican and stand up for Trump and stop being such an asshole.
