Mike Pence Drops out of Republican Presidential Campaign

According to his campaign, the coffers were running low on funds

Former U.S. Vice President Mike Pence ended his cash-strapped presidential campaign on Saturday, after struggling for months to convince Republican voters he was the best alternative to the man he once served with unswerving loyalty, Donald Trump.

Pence's surprise announcement at the Republican Jewish Coalition donor conference in Las Vegas made him the first big-name candidate to drop out. Trump, despite his legal woes, remains the runaway frontrunner in the race.

"Traveling [all] over the country over the past six months, I came here to say it's become clear to me: This is not my time," Pence said to his audience to gasps and, later, prolonged claps and cheers of support. "So, after much prayer and deliberation, I have decided to suspend my campaign for president effective today."
