Carly Fiorina Drops Out of the Republican Presidential Race


Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina has suspended her campaign for the Republican Primary Presidential nomination after receiving just 4.1% of the votes in the New Hampshire Primary on Tuesday and continuing to place at the bottom of the race with only a 2-3% showing in the latest national polls.


"This campaign was always about citizenship—taking back our country from a political class that only serves the big, the powerful, the wealthy, and the well connected," Fiorina wrote on her Facebook page. "Election after election, the same empty promises are made and the same poll-tested stump speeches are given, but nothing changes." 

"I've said throughout this campaign that I will not sit down and be quiet. I'm not going to start now. While I suspend my candidacy today, I will continue to travel this country and fight for those Americans who refuse to settle for the way things are and a status quo that no longer works for them. Our Republican Party must fight alongside these Americans as well. We must end crony capitalism by fighting the policies that allow it to flourish. We must fix our festering problems by holding our bloated, inept government bureaucracy accountable. Republicans must stand for conservative principles that lift people up and recognize all Americans have the right to fulfill their God-given potential."
