Bownback Drops Out of Presidential Race

(WVLT/CBS) - The field of Republican candidates for President just got a little smaller.

Kansas Senator Sam Brownback announced Friday in Topeka that he is dropping out of the race.

Brownback, surrounded by family and friends, said his yellow brick road just came short of the White House.

Brownback had difficulty raising enough money to stay in the campaign.

He said he thought he had a lot of good ideas, but that his campaign was out of money.

Brownback said he was not ready to make an endorsement for any other candidate.

He did raise enough to be eligible for federal matching funds but decided it was time end his campaign.

The senator is a pro-life candidate who also supported a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

The later position cost him support in some conservative republican circles.

    YEAH!!!! One more of those gopS realize that w's idiocy is going to cost them more, in popularity than the misdeeds of Nixon. Tricky Dick may have been dishonest but not stupid and would not have worked hard at destroying the nation like "double-u" has done non-stop. HURRAH for Democrats - End the gop!"
