DNC Chair Statement on Carly Fiorina & Governor Chris Christie’s Decision to Suspend Their Campaigns

WASHINGTON – In response to Carly Fiorina and Governor Chris Christie’s announcements that they are suspending their 2016 bids for president, DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:

“Carly Fiorina and Governor Chris Christie may be dropping out of the presidential race, but their overheated rhetoric and support for failed economic policies live on in the Republican Party’s divisive and out-of-touch primary. It’s getting clearer every day, there’s no Republican establishment left to speak of. Meanwhile our Democratic candidates continue to show they will fight for the priorities of the American people and understand how to build on the incredible progress we’ve made over the last seven years by expanding opportunity for hardworking families. We must elect a Democrat as the 45th president of the United States.”
