Fiorina Ends Presidential Campaign

Businesswoman Carly Fiorina ended her campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination today, following her seventh-place finish in yesterday's New Hampshire primary. Politico reports:

Carly Fiorina quits 2016 race

Business executive Carly Fiorina dropped out of the 2016 contest on Wednesday, ending a campaign that failed to enlist enough support despite Republican voters’ clear preference for a Washington outsider this cycle....

It’s an end to a campaign that scored a brief moment in the Republican spotlight, courtesy of an insult from Donald Trump that elicited a sharply crafted response from Fiorina.

But her pop in the polls in the fall of 2015 disintegrated quickly. Later debate performances failed to win the same attention and she failed to score significant endorsements or collect campaign-sustaining donations.
