(CNN)Carly Fiorina is ending her bid for the Republican presidential nomination.
The former Hewlett-Packard executive announced the decision on Facebook Wednesday after finishing seventh in New Hampshire's primary.
"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," Fiorina said in a post.
The writing was on the wall after she didn't qualify for last week's ABC News debate, and a last-minute campaign on her behalf to allow her in was unsuccessful.
Fiorina's best moments of the campaign came in the first two presidential debates.
She shined in the "undercard" for the first debate, hosted by Fox News, earning enough of a bump in the polls to make the cut for the main stage in the second debate, hosted by CNN.
And then she handed in a strong enough performance in that debate to rise into the top-polling tier of GOP candidates.
