Gov. Chris Christie headed back to New Jersey last night following the New Hampshire primary to take a breath and think things over, and as just about everyone suspected, Christie decided to suspend his campaign rather than move on to South Carolina.

Christie went after the Florida senator like a “heat-seeking anti-Rubio missile” in last weekend’s debate, with only the el luchador mask missing. It was a gamble which seems to have hurt Christie more than Rubio.
