News Corp chief Rupert Murdoch on Wednesday likened New Jersey Gov. Christie to a suicide bomber after the Republican presidential candidate finished sixth in the New Hampshire primary.

Christie blasted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) during the last Republican presidential debate for repeating the same line three times. Following Rubio’s poor debate performance, he finished fifth in the New Hampshire primary. Rubio himself acknowledged that Christie’s hit on him during the debate hurt him in New Hampshire.

The New Jersey governor went home to New Jersey on Wednesday to make a decision about his next steps, and reports indicate that he will suspend his campaign.
