Fiorina suspends presidential campaign

Carly Fiorina has suspended her campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. The 61-year-old former technology announced her decision to quit the race on Twitter.

Fiorina drew positive reviews for several strong debate performances, in which she touted her business expertise and argued that as the lone woman in the GOP field she was best positioned to oppose likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. But she struggled to build support in a crowded primary field and her poll numbers lagged.

Fiorina announced her candidacy in April. She previously ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in California.

Fiorina struggled with criticism of her time at Hewlett-Packard, where she was ousted from the top job in 2005, after leading a major merger and laying off 30,000 people.
