After the last debate, Scott Walker had collapsing polls and no ability to get money. So rather than prolong the agony, rumor has it he is pulling the plug today.
I have given up thinking I know how things will shake out, but I know who I cannot ever support in the general. The herd is thinning.
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 condition of anonymity.
Mr. Walker called a news conference in Madison at 6 p.m. Eastern time.
“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.”
Mr. Walker’s intended withdrawal is a humiliating climb down for a Republican governor once seen as all but politically invincible.
