Rand Paul Dropping Out of Race


According to several sources, Rand Paul will be dropping out of the race for president.

Despite his large libertarian following and grassroots support, Rand was unable to close the gap between his opponents. He will be focusing on another race, however – the one for his reelection to Senate.

According to Politico:

The Kentucky senator was facing a dismal money situation, and ended the fourth quarter with $1.3 million in the bank for his presidential campaign. He raised roughly $2.1 million in the quarter, while spending $2.9 million. His super PACs ended the year with a little more than $4 million in cash on hand.

With Paul out of the race, who will Libertarians throw their support behind? Will it be the Libertarian Party candidate, Gary Johnson?
