Fox News reports:
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has a blunt suggestion for some of his rivals for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination that they likely don’t want to hear. Christie says that for the candidates who “haven’t made the stage” at the upcoming first GOP presidential primary debate, “it’s time to go.”
“If you don’t make the debate stage, you should leave the field. I think it’s that simple. That’s the first winnowing process.”
That list includes former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, former CIA spy and former Rep. Will Hurd of Texas, Mayor Francis Suarez of Miami, Florida, Michigan businessman Perry Johnson, and Larry Elder, a former talk radio host who was a candidate for governor in the 2021 California recall election.
Read the full article. There’s still time for those listed above to make the debate but it’s unlikely that any of them will.
