Chris Christie Shoots Down Potential No Labels Run

Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey, made it clear on Wednesday night that he will not be pursuing a third-party bid for the presidency, putting an end to the rumors and speculation.

Christie had been considering a potential third-party bid for the presidency, with some proposing that he join a unity ticket proposed by No Labels.

In a recent statement, he made it clear that his consideration of a third-party bid hinges on the possibility of securing the crucial 270 electoral votes.

On Wednesday, the former GOP presidential candidate admitted that he saw no way to move forward.

“I appreciate the encouragement I’ve gotten to pursue a third party candidacy. believe we need a country that once again feels like everyone has a stake in what we’re doing and leadership that strives to bring people together, instead of using anger to divide us.” Christie announced in a statement.

“While I believe this is a conversation that needs to be had with the American people, I also believe that if there is not a pathway to win and if my candidacy in any way, shape or form would help Donald Trump become president again, then it is not the way forward,” he continued.

The ex-governor of New Jersey suspended his presidential campaign prior to the Iowa caucuses in January.

During his campaign, he consistently voiced his disapproval of former President Trump and has made a firm commitment to never endorse him.
