Walker drops out

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker dropped out of the GOP presidential race Monday evening, urging other candidates to do the same so voters will coalesce around a candidate who can topple front-runner Donald Trump. “The Bible is full of stories of people who were called to be leaders in unusual ways,” Walker said in prepared remarks at a press conference in Madison, Wis., recalling when he sat in church the previous day. “Today, I believe that I am being called to lead helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field,” Walker said. “I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same, so the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner,” he said. “We need to get back to the basics of our party,” the Wisconsin governor said. Walker is the second major Republican presidential candidate to end his campaign, following former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who suspended his White House bid on Sept. 11. There are 15 candidates still in competition for the Republican presidential nomination”.
