And another one is suspected to bite the dust for the Republican Party today. According to The New York Times, New Jersey governor Chris Christie is expected to formally suspend his presidential campaign after a meeting with his closest advisors.

A statement announced that the suspension could come as early as today, according to a source who was briefed on Christie's plans.
“We bet the ranch on New Hampshire, and no one ever anticipated the Trump phenomenon,” the source told ABC News. “He’s a realist.”
Christie's campaign chairman from New Hampshire, Wayne MacDonald, was not part of today's deliberations but is quite familiar with what is going on within the campaign said that whether or not Christie qualifies for the next debate will likely be a part of the decision.
Since he came in 6th in New Hampshire, he doesn't qualify for the debate.
“It’s just a logical next step,” MacDonald said of the likelihood that the governor will formally drop out of the race.

Christie, at one time, was one of the front runners for the nomination after his handling of Superstorm Sandy and his abrupt, loud personality. However, he virtually disappeared from his state and was engaged in political scandals.
