Scott Walker Bashes Trump As He Exits Race
When Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker announced yesterday that he would be ending his bid for President of the United States, he was not content to go out quietly like former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who dropped out of the race on Sept. 11.
According to Fox News, Walker used yesterday's press conference as an opportunity to lament how the crowded GOP race had turned into a battle of personal attacks.
He then explained his strategy for leaving as an effort to down front-runner Donald Trump: "I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field. ...I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner."
Following his announcement, Ben Carson praised Walker as "an outstanding leader with a strong record of fighting for conservative principles. I wish him the very best."
Do you agree with Walker? Are you disappointed to see him leave the campaign?
