    In a scathing critique of the Republican presidential candidate, the New York Times calls on Chris Christie to exit the race. Stat.

    "The point is that New Jersey is in trouble, and the governor is off pursuing a presidential run that's turned out to be nothing more than a vanity project," the editorial board wrote. "Mr. Christie's numbers are in the basement, and he's nearly out of campaign cash. This is his moment, all right: to go home and use the year left in his term to clean out the barn, as Speaker John Boehner would say."

    The editorial comes the day after the third Republican debate where Christie is widely considered to have had a good debate performance, but continues to stuggle with low poll numbers in the crowded field.  

    Christie responded via Twitter, saying he's "not going anywhere."
