Scott Walker, stumbling in the polls, expected to quit 2016 presidential race
The latest poll shows Walker at less than one-half of 1 percentage point.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker‘s bid for the White House has come to an early end.
A supporter briefed on Walker’s expected decision to drop out of the 2016 Republican presidential race told the New York Times that lack of funding is a factor. “He’s made a decision not to limp into Iowa,” the source said. The Times reports that three Republicans, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, have confirmed Walker’s exit.
A new CNN/ORC poll shows that support for Walker, who once led the GOP field, has fallen to less than half a percentage point. Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina is now in second place behind real-estate mogul Donald Trump.
Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, and former New York Gov. George Pataki also registered in the poll with less than one-half of 1 percentage point support.
Walker will hold a press conference at 5:00 CT today at the Edgewater Hotel in Madison, Wisconsin, where he is expected to withdraw his candidacy.
Update 5:21pm CT, Sept. 21: Walker has announced the end of his 2016 presidential campaign.
