Trump critic Chris Christie drops out of White House race

Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie dropped out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination on Friday, depriving the contest of its most vocal critic by far of scandal-plagued front-runner Donald Trump.

“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 told supporters at an event in Windham, New Hampshire.
