The field of republican presidential hopefuls is dwindling. At the same time some candidates are getting the shot in the arm their campaigns desperately need. FOX News correspondent Kristin Fisher has more from Washington

After spending more than seventy days campaigning in New Hampshire and only placing sixth in the granite state’s primary New Jersey governor Chris Christie says he’s out.

Carly Fiorina is also throwing in the towel after a close to last place finish in New Hampshire.
Meanwhile Ohio governor John Kasich is enjoying his wave of popularity after coming in second. Not wasting any time Kasich arrived in South Carolina early this morning and spent the day meeting with constituents touting his desire to run a positive campaign.

“When people go negative it’s because they’ve got something they’re not doing right to connect and I’d rather be connecting and being positive.”

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush is still hanging on telling voters they’ve pushed the pause button.
Today he unveiled an ad in South Carolina featuring his brother.
“There is no doubt in my mind that Jeb Bush will be a great commander in chief for our country.”

Taking the blame for his fifth place finish senator Marco Rubio is admitting his showing at Saturday’s debate took some wind out of his sail but the freshman senator says he’s moving forward.

“Here’s the good news, we’ve got a game coming up, there’s a future here for this campaign and for the country, you want to know what this election for me.”

On the other side of the aisle, after crushing Hillary Clinton in the primary, senator Bernie Sanders spent the morning having breakfast with Reverend All Sharpton.

“I think it is very important that he sent the signal that on the morning after a historic victory, he would come to Harlem and have breakfast with me.”

Sanders and Clinton will square off tomorrow night in what’s expected to be a pivotal debate in light of Sanders win.
