Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina announces she is suspending her 2016 Republican presidential campaign just one day after the New Hampshire primary. Fiorina, who was excluded from the final debate hosted by ABC News on Saturday, came in seventh in the Granite State with 7% and earned just 11,706 votes.

“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,” she said in a statement.

Fiorina’s campaign manager, Frank Sadler, notified members of her staff in a conference call Wednesday that she was suspending her campaign effective immediately.

“The team is obviously exceptionally proud of her for not even being known by 96 percent of the electorate entering the race,” said Charlie Gerow, a top adviser to Mrs. Fiorina. “She is now clearly well-known, well-liked and well-respected today and will be a strong and powerful voice for Republican principles for a long time to come.”

Worth noting, Fiorina, who took Hillary and the Left to task over their limited definition of feminism, had a parting message for young girls:

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.
