BREAKING: Scott Walker reported throwing in the towel for GOP nomination

scott-walker-topShort of money and short of support, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker plans to drop out of the 2016 Republican presidential campaign.

Three Republican sources who spoke on condition of anonymity said Walker has concluded he no longer has a path to secure the GOP nomination, The New York Times reported.

The governor has announced a news conference in Madison, the Wisconsin state capital at 6 p.m. Eastern time.

“The short answer is money,” a Walker supported said. “He’s made a decision not to limp into Iowa.”

The Times reported:

Mr. Walker’s intended withdrawal is a humiliating climb down for a Republican governor once seen as all but politically invincible. He started the year at the top of the polls but has seen his position gradually deteriorate, amid the rise of Donald J. Trump’s populist campaign and repeated missteps by Mr. Walker himself.

In the most recent CNN survey, Mr. Walker drew support nationally from less than one-half of one percent of Republican primary voters. He faced growing pressure to shake up his campaign staff, a step he was loath to take, according to Republicans briefed on his deliberations.

Local and national media quickly picked up the story:
