Republican Chris Christie has dropped out of the US presidential race after a disappointing finish in New Hampshire. The New Jersey governor spent heavily and campaigned the longest in the state but still finished in sixth place. Mr Christie joins former tech executive Carly Fiorina, who also left the race after struggling in Iowa and New Hampshire. He was praised for his debate performances and was credited with blunting the momentum of Marco Rubio. During the campaign, Mr Christie promoted his law-and-order credentials, saying his experience as a federal prosecutor after the 9/11 attacks uniquely prepared him to protect the country against terrorists. Also as the Republican leader of traditionally Democratic state, Mr Christie said his experience showed he could work with both parties to get things done in Washington.
