Rick Perry drops out - who's next?

Governor Goodhair has announced that he's suspending his 2016 campaign. He listed three reasons, but could only remember two of them during the press release.

Don't worry, cowboys. You still have a couple of texas tards to cheer for.

I will post in this thread to create the (false) impression that anyone ever cared about Rick Perry's presidential ambitions.

Scott Walker is cancelling events all over the country. Looks like the dropout will be number 2 to. . .errr, drop out.

Former GOP Favorite Scott Walker Isn't Even Registering on New Polls, Next to Drop Out?
- September 20, 2015

The asterisk is a highly contentious symbol in statistics, whether it be in politics or sports. It denotes that a special consideration or an anomalous variable contributed to that particular stat. In the case of Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker, it spells certain doom for the anti-worker candidate.

Walker was once a GOP favorite for the Republican presidential nomination, but he is registering so low in the polls that he doesn't even have a number. His poll percentage is an asterisk, which means less than 0.5 percent. This is great news, and the GOP candidates are starting to drop like flies.

Carson will be done soon. On CNN this morning they had Armstrong Williams. What a nut, is he Alex Jones's twin?

All about Carson's view on a Muslim president.

Carson came off as very timid and meek in the CNN debate.....he's having some surge, but I don't think he'll stick around.

I think Rubio is in a decent spot.....trump's slide has begun, Carson is kind of a nut, Fiorina can't defend her largely abysmal tenure at HP and Jeb is just trying to claw his way back to where he was 6 months ago.

That is so much ****. No president wants to surrender anything to Congress. He will play as much as a king as other Presidents.

I wish Jeb would bail, and Jindal, and Christie, and Trump, and Cruz, and Rubio, and Carson, and Fiorina, and Huckabee, and Santorum, and Pataki, and Kasich, and whoever the hell is left besides Rand Paul.

Seems like he's been pretty successful at this strategy so far.

Scott Walker to drop out of race: sources


Jon Ward
Senior Political Correspondent
September 21, 2015

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is expected to drop out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination, a Republican familiar with his decision told Yahoo News.

Another source close to Walker confirmed "is exiting the race," but did not provide further details.

Walker, who has seen his poll numbers plummet in recent weeks, has scheduled a press conference in Madison, Wis., where he will make the announcement.

The New York Times was the first report Walker's decision to abandon his campaign.

A CNN/ORC poll released on Sunday found Walker, who was once leading the crowded GOP field, registered less than half a percentage point of support among Republican voters.

The Wisconsin governor is the second GOP candidate to bow out of the 2016 race. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry ended his presidential bid earlier this month.

- With Yahoo News chief White House correspondent Olivier Knox contributing reporting

Flying under the radar ensures you won't get shot down....let everyone snipe each other while you wait in the bushes.
