Instead he is coming back to New Jersey.

Tough decisions will have to be made when he talks with his family, friends and political advisers.

Christie finished a distant 6th in New Hampshire, and should he have had the will or the money to fight on to South Carolina for the next primary, he wouldn't have qualified for the debates.

As early as today Christie is expected to announce he will end his presidential bid.

Once seen as the biggest GOP star, Christie never recovered from Bridge-gate and it cost him the presidency.
