Breaking Digest previously reported that 2024 Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie was reportedly planning to withdraw from the 2024 presidential race.
Journalist Mark Halperin was the first to break the news.
Per Halperin, Christie was expected to make the announcement on Wednesday evening at 5 pm ET in New Hampshire, just days ahead of the Republican Iowa presidential caucuses.
Chris Christie was only polling at around three percent.
Christie’s campaign mainly centered on trashing President Trump.
It was reported last month that Christie would not be included on the Maine primary election ballot because he failed to secure the necessary number of in-state signatures.
To be eligible for the ballot in Maine’s March 5, 2024, primary election, a candidate must collect 2,000 verified in-state signatures. However, state officials announced on Saturday that Christie’s campaign did not meet this requirement.
Christie was booed and heckled recently by Republicans at the Florida Summit in Orlando.
On Wednesday evening, Christie officially announced that he is withdrawing from the 2024 presidential race, trashing President Trump on his way out.
