Following disappointing finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina has suspended her presidential campaign.
“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 posted minutes ago 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.”
Fiorina was angry after being shut out of last Saturday’s presidential debate, calling it “an utter disgrace for our party and for our democracy” in an email to supporters. She said ABC refused to let her campaign even buy a commercial during the debate.
Now, if Kasich, Bush and Carson drop out after SC, hopefully, voters will be able to consolidate behind a non-Trump candidate and put a stop to his insane clown posse of a campaign. No disrespect to you Trump fans out there. I just don’t think he’s conservative or even particularly Republican, and I don’t think he’d make a very good president.
But “not very good” beats what the Democrats are offering this year (and any year), so I’d actually support Trump in the general, albeit cautiously, haltingly, tentatively, and probably regretfully.
