Carly Fiorina, former technology business executive, ended her run for the Republican nomination yesterday. Her campaign peaked early but faded fast. She announced her decision on Facebook after finishing seventh in New Hampshire's primary.

Her best moments of the campaign came during the first two presidential debates. She had shined in the "undercard" for the first debate, hosted by Fox News, earning enough of a bump in the polls to make the cut for the main stage in the second debate, hosted by CNN. Her strong performance in the second debate saw her rise into the top-tier of GOP candidates. Those poll bounces didn't hold and voters in Iowa and New Hampshire favored other candidates.
