The more than half-a-dozen Republican governors running for president have been a flop on the campaign trail so far.
This week, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who entered 2015 atop the primary polls, was demoted to the “happy hour” stage at the next debate, along with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who in 2008 won the Iowa caucuses.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, considered by many to be the nominal front-runner when he first began exploring a White House bid, recently hit reset on his struggling campaign and has moved further and further away from the center of the debate stage as his poll numbers have fallen.
