Fiorina campaign limps out of New Hampshire
The campaign heads to Charleston Friday, and will be in Greenville, site of the next GOP debate, on Saturday.
Under the criteria set by host network CBS on Tuesday, Fiorina will not get an invitation to that event.
The top five vote-getters in the New Hampshire primary, as well as the top three from the Iowa caucuses, will be invited. So, too, will the top five candidates in a polling average of likely South Carolina primary voters. The network added that to be included on this basis, a candidate must also have won 3 percent support in Iowa or New Hampshire, in addition to commanding at least 3 percent in South Carolina or national polls.
In a Twitter comment, Fiorina said: "Looking forward to debate in South Carolina this weekend. Let's use real criteria this time: If you've got a delegate, you've got a podium."
Fiorina has earned one delegate so far from her seventh place finish in Iowa. She earned no delegates in New Hampshire, as her campaign, as well as those of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Dr. Ben Carson, fell below the 10 percent threshold set for awarding delegates.
Pressure is mounting on the New Hampshire laggards to drop out of the contest.
After the New Hampshire vote Tuesday night, Christie told the crowd he will "make a decision on our next step forward based on the results."
Carson, who did not attend his rally in New Hampshire, issued a statement in which he said, "I will carry on this fight for as long as the people stand with me. As we now move on to South Carolina, Nevada and the Super Tuesday states, I will continue to stand for integrity, accountability and honest leadership.”
Fiorina campaign manager Frank Sadler issued a statement saying the campaign has "reserved $1 million on air in Nevada next week" to broadcast the same ad Fiorina debuted during the Super Bowl.
As for the candidate, Fiorina tweeted that she looked forward to spending Valentine's Day with her husband in Nevada.
