Tells you what I know. The day after I mention how he did OK in Iowa, he’s getting out.
Rand Paul will drop out of the race for president, three sources close to the campaign told POLITICO.
Paul, a freshman Kentucky senator and the son of former Texas Rep. Ron Paul, has a large libertarian following but failed to gain traction in the presidential race. He now faces a race for reelection to the Senate.
Still hanging around: Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Bush, Kasich, Christie, Fiorina, Carson. Gone or soon will be: Walker, Perry, Paul, Huckabee, Santorum, Graham, Jindal, Gilmore, Pataki.
17 winnowed down to 8. Suddenly, there’s a whole lot more elbow room in the clown car.
