Rand Paul Suspends Presidential Campaign

February 3, 2016

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul became the third person to end a 2016 presidential campaign on the heels of a poorer than hoped-for showing at the Iowa caucus. Paul announced he was suspending his campaign:

“Although, today I will suspend my campaign for president, the fight is far from over,” Mr. Paul said in a statement. “I will continue to carry the torch for Liberty in the United States Senate and I look forward to earning the privilege to represent the people of Kentucky for another term.”

Two former governors, Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and Martin O'Malley of Maryland suspended their campaigns earlier this week.
