Carly Fiorina Skipped Her Own Iowa Caucus Afterparty

Feb 02, 2016

Carly Fiorina had a really bad Monday.

Despite being a frequent winner on the debate circuit, the Republican presidential hopeful suffered a huge loss during the Iowa caucus.

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO received just 1.9% of the vote and won no delegates, coming in far behind winner Ted Cruz, who received 27.6% of the vote and eight delegates. Donald Trump, despite leading in most polls, came in second with 24.3% of the vote.

According to a tweet by Fox News host Todd Starnes, Fiorina took her loss badly, foregoing her caucus party and "heading straight to airport (to avoid storm)."

Another Twitter user, Roger Riley of local Iowa news site WHO-HD, tweeted a photo of an empty room, with the caption "Carly Fiorina no show at her party as Bernie Sanders on the tv."

Fiorina herself tweeted around 10:30pm local time that she was boarding a plane and heading to New Hampshire.
