New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who has staked his presidential aspirations on New Hampshire, abandoned the Granite State Friday to return home due to the pending winter storm.
I’m sorry, NH but I gotta go home – we got snow coming. #Jonas

The National Weather Service has placed parts of New Jersey under winter storm, high wind, coastal flooding and blizzard warnings.
New Jersey residents haven’t been too fond of their governor since he launched his presidential campaign. In August, a majority of registered voters said he should resign. This came after a poll in April which found Christie’s approval rating among voters was the lowest of any governor in 2015.
