Republican field narrows as campaign moves south

0

WASHINGTON, D.C.: Two more Republicans ended their White House runs Wednesday, whittling down the field as the party’s remaining candidates and Democrat Hillary Clinton look to blunt the momentum of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders down south. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former Hewlett-Packard chief executive Carly Fiorina both called time on their presidential bids, one day after finishing sixth and seventh, respectively, in the New Hampshire primary. Trump and Sanders—two political outsiders with vastly different ideologies, but who have a common campaign credo of speaking what they say is truth to power—served notice in the Granite State on Tuesday with their resounding victories. Sanders almost doubled Clinton’s tally and Trump bested second place Ohio Governor John Kasich by almost 20 percentage points. Both results shocked the party establishments, virtually guaranteeing bitter and drawn-out races for the Democratic and Republican nominations.
