Coming In Fourth In South Carolina, Former Florida Governor Suspends Campaign
Jeb Bush has just quit the Republican race for the White House. The former Florida governor who just days ago had his brother, former President George W. Bush, and his mother, speak in support of his candidacy, is suspending his campaign.
Speaking to supporters right now, Bush, amid tears, broke the news, and appeared both upset and received.
Jeb: "Thank you for the opportunity to run for the greatest office on the face of the Earth. I love you, God bless you."— Ed O'Keefe (@edatpost) February 21, 2016
