Former GOP presidential candidate and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has turned down the opportunity to run for president on the third-party No Labels ticket.

“I appreciate the encouragement I’ve gotten to pursue a third party candidacy," Christie wrote on the social media platform, X. "I believe we need a country that once again feels like everyone has a stake in what we're doing and leadership that strives to bring people together, instead of using anger to divide us."

Last week, No Labels contacted Christie and asked him to potentially run on its third-party ticket, according to Fox News.

He said in his post that if he were to run as a third-party candidate, there would be no pathway to victory for him, also seeming to rule out all third-party options. 

"While I believe this is a conversation that needs to be had with the American people, I also believe that if there is not a pathway to win and if my candidacy in any way, shape or form would help Donald Trump become president again, then it is not the way forward," he said. 

Christie ended his GOP presidential campaign in early January right before the Iowa caucus.

Throughout most of his campaign, he criticized former President Trump.
