Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie plans to suspend his presidential campaign, multiple reports said Wednesday.

Just hours after a painful sixth-place finish in New Hampshire, where the GOP 2016 hopeful spent the majority of his time and resources, sources close to the campaign said he plans to end his bid for the presidency.

But a spokeswoman for the Christie campaign denied the reports to Reuters, saying that no such decision has been made.

The candidate headed back to his home state Wednesday to consider his options — often a precursor to the end of a campaign.
