New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will suspend his campaign for the Republican nomination for president, according to multiple reports Wednesday morning.

Christie is expected to make the move as early as Wednesday, ABC News reported.

The news comes the day following the New Hampshire presidential primaries. Christie received 8 percent of the vote among GOP primary voters in the state, nearly 30 points behind the GOP frontrunner, businessman Donald Trump.

Christie said Monday night following the results that he would head home to New Jersey with his wife instead of traveling to South Carolina to campaign.

“Mary Pat and I spoke tonight and we’ve decided to go home to New Jersey tomorrow and we’re going to take a deep breath and see what the results are tonight,” Christie said during his speech in New Hampshire. “By tomorrow morning or tomorrow afternoon we should know.”
