Christie calls it quits

(NBC News) The race for the White House is moving on to South Carolina, reshaped by the results from New Hampshire.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former Hewlitt-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina have both dropped out of the race.

Tuesday’s primary was a stinging loss for Hillary Clinton and resounding wins for Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Bernie Sanders.

After his more than 20 point win, Sanders will get more attention from Democrats in the South.

"I don’t know if they’ll vote for him, and he starts way behind, but people will give him a hearing," says Washington Post columnist and South Carolina native Eugene Robinson.

Hillary Clinton leads by 30 points in South Carolina polling, but she was stunned when young New Hampshire Democrats and women rejected her for Sanders.

"I know I have some work to do, particularly with young people," she said afterward.

On the Republican side, Donald Trump’s 20 point win powers him to the next contest, where he currently enjoys a 16 point lead.

New Hampshire GOP runner-up John Kasich rushed to South Carolina as well, eager to capitalize on his strong showing.
