Mitch Perry Report for 2.11.16 – Carly and Chris bid adieu to the circus

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina have suspended their presidential campaigns. This reporter had the chance to see the New Jersey governor (yes, that is the day job he’s pretty much blown off for months) a week ago in Keene, N.H. The fun part about that was how intimate it was: It was a small crowd (maybe too small, an indication of how he was going to perform on Tuesday), but other than a few opening remarks, the 90-minute event was all about him…

Jumbled GOP field hopes for survival in South Carolina

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Hoping for survival in the South, a muddled field of Republican presidential contenders descended Wednesday on South Carolina, no closer to clarity about who can stand between Donald Trump and their party’s nomination. Not me, Carly Fiorina announced, dropping out of the campaign. A Chris Christie spokeswoman said his race was over, too. But a sizeable field remained. To the dismay of party leaders, all signs point to a drawn-out battle for delegates following Trump’s resounding victory in New Hampshire.…

in 2017/Top Headlines by

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie dropped out of the Republican nomination for president on Wednesday, a day after his disappointing sixth-place finish in New Hampshire’s primary. Campaign spokeswoman Samantha Smith said Christie shared his decision with staff at his campaign headquarters in Morristown, New Jersey, late Wednesday afternoon, and was calling donors and other supporters.

Carly Fiorina suspends her presidential campaign

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina has suspended her presidential campaign, a day after she finished seventh in the GOP presidential pack in New Hampshire, getting a little over 4 percent of the vote. “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,” the former Hewlett-Packard CEO said in a statement released at 3 p.m. eastern time. “Election after election, the same empty promises are…

Marco Rubio promises supporters he’ll do better as the campaign moves to South Carolina

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Marco Rubio vows that he will never allow what happened to him in last Saturday night’s GOP debate to happen to him again. “I want you to understand something,” he told the crowd of disappointed supporters at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, New Hampshire on Tuesday night. “Our disappointment tonight is not on you; it’s on me. It is on me. I did not do well on Saturday night — listen to this: that will never happen again. That will never happen again.” What…

Mitch Perry Report for 2.10.16 – The GOP is still looking for its establishment candidate

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

So much for “Marcomentum.” Eight days ago, the national media, with some justification, was spreading the word that Marco Rubio was the unexpected star of the Iowa caucus, despite the fact that he received fewer votes than Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. Rubio began rising in the polls in NH, and it seemed that the battle of the governors (Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and John Kasich) was all about who would come in third, and live to continue their campaign.…

Mitch Perry Report for 2.8.16 – Can Rubio rise above ruckus?

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Good morning from Nashua, New Hampshire, where snow is expected to hit New England again later Monday. We want to get a run in before things get uglier out there, so let’s right to the point after a full weekend of campaigning. Can Marco survive the Christie pummeling? Let’s face it: Unless every poll out there is wrong, Donald Trump is going to win the New Hampshire GOP primary Tuesday night. There’s never been much doubt about that. But who…
