Scott Walker Drops Out of Presidential Race

Standard

Walker Slammed the Primary for “Drifting into Personal Attacks”

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has surprisingly dropped out of the 2016 Presidential campaign.  After a poor debate performance last week made fundraising difficult, he concluded it was impossible for him to win and said he’d rather “bow out pretty than be forced out ugly” later in the campaign.  He called on other candidates to drop out so that Republicans could unite around a “positive conservative alternative” to front-runner Donald Trump.

When Walker entered the race over the summer, he quickly surged past Jeb Bush to the top of the polls as he was the darling of conservatives for the job he had done as governor of a liberal state.  However, he was caught flip-flopping on several issues and began to drop in the polls, achieving only 3% in the most recent polls.
