DERRY, N.H. — There are eight major Republican candidates currently running for president. Only one of them — former Hewlett-Packard CEO #Carly Fiorina — was excluded from Saturday night’s final #debate before the New Hampshire primary.
Fiorina’s poll numbers left her just short of making the cut, as determined by a standard that ABC #News established with the Republican National Committee’s blessing.
The lone woman in the GOP race, Fiorina told us during a recent day we spent with her in New Hampshire that she suffers gender discrimination regularly on the campaign trail.
“All the words that I have been called as a secretary, as a CEO, I’m being called as a presidential candidate — you know, ‘bimbo,’ ‘bitch,'” Fiorina said. “People have said that when I tell my story I’m playing the gender card. No, I’m not. I’m just telling my story.”
