UPDATED UPDATE 3/2/16 : The Washington Post is reporting that Dr. Ben Carson will tell his supporters he cannot see a path forward to the nomination. (Jeb Bush suspended his campaign about a week ago.)

UPDATE: As of February 10th, the field drops to six. Chris Christie and Carly Fiorino are now out.
As of February 3rd, it looks like candidates are down to eight. Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum and Sen. Rand Paul have suspended their campaigns.
