Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina drop out of the Republican primary

February 10, 2016

 In my post this morning covering the results of the New Hampshire primary I stated I believed Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina would drop out of the race while Chris Christie was too pigheaded to drop out and would continue to South Carolina.

  There is still no news on Ben Carson but Carly Fiorina has dropped out of the race. Here is more:

“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,” Fiorina said in a statement announcing her campaign suspension.

Fiorina placed seventh in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday with 4 percent of the vote and seventh in Iowa with 2 percent of the vote.

  But the bigger news today is that Chris Christie has also dropped out of the race:

Christie dropped out after finishing sixth in New Hampshire with 7.4 percent of the vote.

Christie had laid the groundwork for a hard push in New Hampshire long before the race kicked into high gear, but his candidacy was eclipsed by a large Republican primary field that sucked away voters from all angles.

  Chris Christie put all of his hopes in New Hampshire hoping for a good showing which would maybe gain him some momentum moving forward and after a sixth place finish he realized the game was over and he did the right thing. It will be interesting to see who these former candidates decide to endorse…if they endorse anyone.
