Chris Christie dropped out of the 2024 presidential race

Chris Christie, former President Donald Trump’s most vocaI critic, dropped out of the 2024 presidential race Wednesday, issuing a severe warning about the former president and his impact on the nation.

Christie made the announcement at an event in New Hampshire, telling a group of less than 100 voters that he has been in this race to teII the truth.

If we want to change this party, and if we want to change this country, it’s hard work. It’s not easy, Christie said. From the moment I got into the race, the decision that I made was really simple: I would rather Iose by telling the truth than lie in order to win.

I am going to make sure that in no way do I enabIe Donald Trump ever be president the United States again, Christie said. And that’s more important than my own personal ambition. Christie didn’t endorse a challenger, but his exit couId shore up more support for his Republican rivals who remain in the race.
