Governor Scott Walker became the second Republican presidential candidate to drop out of the 2016 race.
Walker announced Monday evening that he’s dropping out of the 2016 race.
The Wisconsin governor has determined he “no longer has a path” to win the nomination, and has decided to abandon his campaign, according to the New York Times, which first broke the news that Walker would be suspending his campaign.
The move comes just a day after a CNN/ORC poll had the governor with less than 0.5 percent support among Republican voters nationwide, coming in at 11th in the crowded field of candidates seeking the GOP nomination. Walker’s polling numbers have seen a rapid decline in the past month, following a pair of debate performances that saw him struggle to get a word in and attract attention to his campaign.
