The sole candidate in the preliminary elections for the Republican Party, Chris Christie, who was opposed to former President Donald Trump, announced his withdrawal from the presidential race yesterday evening, Wednesday.

This decision was made in light of his modest popularity in opinion polls.

This move comes just a few days before the preliminary elections in the state of Iowa, as reported by The Washington Post.

These elections mark the beginning of a Republican race dominated by former President Trump.

Christie, speaking in front of a crowd of his supporters in Windham, New Hampshire, stated, "I am suspending my campaign for presidency."

The 61-year-old Christie, former governor of New Jersey, was initially a supporter of Trump but became one of the Republican Party's most outspoken critics.
