Chris Christie said Tuesday that he was returning to New Jersey to await the final outcome of the New Hampshire primary before determining whether to continue his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

"We're going to go home to New Jersey and wait," he told supporters. "We should know tomorrow morning, tomorrow afternoon, what the vote count is — and that's going to allow us to make a decision about how we move from here in this race."

Christie was projected to place fifth in the primary, with 7 percent of the vote.

He told Jake Tapper on CNN earlier Tuesday that he had three events scheduled in South Carolina on Wednesday.

"There's no reason to go and sit in a hotel room to South Carolina to hear that," Christie said, referring to the final vote count. "We will go home to New Jersey tomorrow morning.

"We will make a decision and on our next step forward, based upon the results once they are completed here in New Hampshire."

The governor congratulated Donald Trump for his victory, stopping some supporters when they booed the front-runner.

"No. Winning's never easy," he said. "No one's ever given a victory, and the people of New Hampshire's Republican Party have spoken very clearly that Mr. Trump is their preference in this election.

"He deserves congratulations for that."
