Carly Fiorina, Chris Christie leaves Presidential Race

Choice 2016 
   Republican Candidate ,Governor  Chris Christie  (NJ) , has suspended his campaign.

Original Story:
 Republican Candidate , Carly Fiorina , is leaving the race  she announced on Facebook, Wednesday
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. 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.
Our Republican Party must fight alongside these Americans as well. We must end crony capitalism by fighting the policies that allow it to flourish. We must fix our festering problems by holding our bloated, inept government bureaucracy accountable. Republicans must stand for conservative principles that lift people up and recognize all Americans have the right to fulfill their God-given potential.
To young girls and women across the country, I say: do not let others define you. Do not listen to anyone who says you have to vote a certain way or for a certain candidate because you're a woman. That is not feminism. Feminism doesn't shut down conversations or threaten women. It is not about ideology. It is not a weapon to wield against your political opponent. A feminist is a woman who lives the life she chooses and uses all her God-given gifts. And always remember that a leader is not born, but made. Choose leadership.
As I have said to the many wonderful Americans I have met throughout this campaign, a leader is a servant whose highest calling is to unlock potential in others. I will continue to serve in order to restore citizen government to this great nation so that together we may fulfill our potential.

 This happens after her poor performance in the Iowa Caucus and the New Hampshire Primary  , she entered the race in April of 2015  as a self promoted outsider and promoted her stature as a businesswoman.
    This leaves (as of this writing) 8 Republican Candidates.

Choice 2016: Two Candidates Drop out

Choice 2016 

images: Twitter 
      The after effects of  Monday's Iowa Caucus continue as   two more candidates  have announced their leaving of the race.  This Morning Kentucky Republican  Senator , Rand Paul , announced the suspension of his campaign.
  CNN Reports   Paul said :
"It's been an incredible honor to run a principled campaign for the White House," Paul said in the statement. "Today, I will end where I began, ready and willing to fight for the cause of Liberty."
    This also means he will go back to focusing on his Kentucky Senatorial reelection campaign, which had the rules changed earlier  last year so Mr.Paul could run for both.

Meanwhile  , According to CNN  former PA Senator , Update : 7:36PMET :  Rick Santorum has announced that he will be leaving the race and endorsing Marco Rubio.  
He did not do well  in the Iowa Caucus , a state he did win in 2012.

Choice 2016: New York Times endorses candidates

Choice 2016 

       The New York Times  editorial  board has announced their endorses for the 2016 presidential election.    On the Democratic party side , they have picked   Hillary Clinton  , who the also endorse in 2008.  They call  that she is tougher on guns ,  she has "done her homework" on the woman pay gap issue , her work on tough Iran sanctions , and here  work as defense secertary.  Finishing with :
Hillary Clinton is the right choice for the Democrats to present a vision for America that is radically different from the one that leading Republican candidates offer — a vision in which middle-class Americans have a real shot at prosperity, women’s rights are enhanced, undocumented immigrants are given a chance at legitimacy, international alliances are nurtured and the country is kept safe.
    Meanwhile on the Republican side they are endorsing Ohio Governor , John Kasich.
 Stating  :
      The battle to be the Republican choice for president has been nasty, brutish and anything but short. The hope among some Republicans is that the Iowa caucuses on Monday and the New Hampshire primary on Feb. 9 will promote a candidate who can appeal to the half of their electorate that doesn’t support the two current front-runners.
    Saying the is the only plausible choice for those Republicans  who may not be in the Trump or Cruz sides.
 Gov. John Kasich of Ohio, though a distinct underdog, is the only plausible choice for Republicans tired of the extremism and inexperience on display in this race. And Mr. Kasich is no moderate. As governor, he’s gone after public-sector unions, fought to limit abortion rights and opposed same-sex 
 But they state that his  ability to compromise  and his ideas that government has some use contrasts him to the others.

Choice 2016: Scott Walker Drops out of race

Choice 2016 

      After a drop in a recent poll by CNN ,  Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker , has decided to make his exit from the race, Monday.
    He also urged  other members of the party, running to do the same saying  today :
"Today, I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field. With this in mind, I will suspend my campaign immediately,"
    "I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner," said Walker, referencing businessman Donald Trump. "This is fundamentally important to the future of our party, and, more important, the future of the country."

He is the 2nd republican to drop out of the race  , the first being former Texas Governor , Rick Perry,  a couple weeks ago.  The field is now down to 15 candidates and now wonderment on who else might be choosing to leave the race.

  The splash and current Front runner also gave his comment on Gov. Walker's decision.
