Numerous news outlets are reporting that Governor Scott Walker is dropping out of the 2016 presidential race.
Via the NYTs:
Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin has concluded he no longer has a path to the Republican presidential nomination and plans to drop out of the 2016 campaign, according to three Republicans familiar with his decision who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Mr. Walker called a news conference in Madison at 6 p.m. Eastern.
“The short answer is money,” said a supporter of Mr. Walker’s who was briefed on the decision. “He’s made a decision not to limp into Iowa.”
The announcement comes as a new CNN national poll placed the Wisconsin governor’s support at less than half a percentage point.
UPDATE: Here’s the announcement:
He is encouraging other GOP candidates to drop out to narrow the field against the current frontrunner.
It’s sad to see quality candidates like Scott Walker and Rick Perry fall by the wayside, but they both seemed unable to adapt to the changing political climate.
What is wanted on the Republican side is a candidate who is willing to stand up to the Democrat media complex, reject liberal premises, and refuse to apologize.
Right now, Donald Trump seems to be the one best filling that bill.
