Did we even remember he was still running?
Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan announced today that he’s dropping out of the race for president, opting to focus on running for re-election in his Congressional seat.
“After seven long months of hard work, I’ll be returning home to my family and friends and community in Ohio to run for re-election for my Congressional seat,” he said in a video posted to his Twitter account.
I’m announcing today that I am withdrawing from the Presidential campaign.
I got into this race in April to really give voice to the forgotten people of our country. I look forward to continuing that fight.
Thank you, to everyone who supported this campaign. pic.twitter.com/BT4z3fQ205

Ryan didn’t qualify for the last two debates and consistently polled near the bottom of the list of candidates, so his announcement comes as no surprise. Eighteen candidates remain.
