Rand Paul Ends Presidential Bid

Written by Eric on February 3, 2016.

Kentucky senator Rand Paul has decided to withdraw from the presidential race after a fifth-place showing in the Iowa caucuses.

“It’s been an incredible honor to run a principled campaign for the White House. Today, I will end where I began, ready and willing to fight for the cause of Liberty,”


rand-dropPaul failed to gain momentum in polling throughout the race, averaging 2.4% nationally in the latest RealClearPolitics average. He was relegated to the undercard at the Jan. 14 South Carolina debate, which he skipped, before rejoining the main stage at the Jan. 28 Des Moines debate.

Jeb Bush, Carla Fiorina and John Kasich all trailed Paul consecutively, falling bend them is Mike Huckabee and Chris Christie with 1.8% of the vote. So far, none of them have made any indication that they’re ready to drop but after New Hampshire we should see more drop as the race takes shape.
