2016 US elections

Editor's note: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's decision to suspend his bid for the GOP presidential nomination comes after he finished sixth in the New Hampshire primary. Christie had spent more than 70 days campaigning in the state. Christie's attacks on Sen. Marco Rubio during Saturday's debate, and Rubio's reaction, seemed to have an impact on Rubio's primary performance, The New York Times reports. However, it didn't appear to translate into votes for Christie. - Stephanie
