Carly Fiorina said she will “keep going” despite her poor showing in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday night.

With 80 percent of the state's precincts reporting, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO placed seventh in the GOP presidential pack, with a little over 4 percent of the vote.

“We have a long way to go in terms of knowing how things are going to exactly settle out, but we feel very encouraged,” Fiorina said at a rally. “We are going to keep going.”

“I’m convinced this is my highest calling as a leader, and you have given me the energy and the determination and wind at our backs to continue this great fight,” she continued.

Fiorina, who also finished seventh in last week's Iowa caucuses, is struggling to break through and risks being left out of the upcoming GOP debate in South Carolina.

She didn't qualify for last week's Fox News debate in New Hampshire and has called on the Republican National Committee to fix its "broken" debate process.

“Even when they try to shut us out, everybody knows we’re talking,” Fiorina said. “I'm not going to sit down and be quiet, and neither are you.”
