Scott Walker Drops Out Of 2016 GOP Presidential Race

Scott WalkerGovernor Scott Walker has officially dropped out of the 2016 GOP Presidential Race.

According to The New York Times, the Walker campaign could not continue to keep up financially, unable to raise a sufficient amount of money to keep the campaign alive. While Walker had a strong start, it was difficult for him to compete with the infamous Donald Trump, whose powerful voice and personality overtook the Governor of Wisconsin.

In his announcement to reporters, Walker said, “I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to do the same, so the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive conservative alternative to the current frontrunner."

He added, “This is fundamentally important to the future of the party and more importantly, to the future of our country.”

According to CNN, here are how the GOP candidates stand:

Donald Trump – 24%

Carly Fiorina – 15%

Ben Carson – 14%

Marco Rubio – 11%

Jeb Bush – 9%

Ted Cruz – 6%

Mike Huckabee –  6%

Rand Paul – 4%

Chris Christie – 3%

John Kasich – 2%

Rick Santorum – 1%
