Governor Chris Christie is “seriously considering” dropping out of the race for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination by the end of this month, according to a report on DCWhispers.
Christie is stuck between 2%-3% in national polls and did not get a bump in his poll numbers following the FoxNews/facebook debate last week during which he had a highly reported exchange with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul over national security and NSA data mining.
DCWhispers says that Christie is facing the real possibility of dropping out of the “top tier” of ten candidates for the second debate, to be hosted by CNN, on September 16 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi California.
MMM has learned that Christie told New Jersey Republican leaders assembled at Drumthwacket last March that he would not stay in a race that he could not win.
Christie’s polling numbers in New Hampshire, considered a “must win” for his prospects of winning the nomination, have taken a hit since Donald Trump and Ohio Govenor John Kasich have entered the race.
