Carly Fiorina has missed the cut for Saturday’s GOP debate, making her the only major candidate remaining who won’t be on the stage.
ABC News will not host an undercard debate, so she will miss out entirely from the national spotlight just days before Tuesday’s New Hampshire primaries.
Fiorina, the only female candidate on the Republican side, failed to meet any prong of the network’s criteria. She did not finish within the top three in the Iowa caucuses, and is not averaging in the top six in polls both nationally and in New Hampshire.
ABC announced its debate lineup Friday afternoon, which includes Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, John Kasich, and Chris Christie. Jim Gilmore is the only other active GOP candidate to miss the cut along with Fiorina, but he rarely registers in most polls.
Fiorina had petitioned the Republican National Committee to step in and force her inclusion into the debate. The RNC did not return a request to comment on that request.
