Mark Sanford drops presidential bid

Not that he was a formidable opponent for President Trump, but former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford has dropped his bid for the Oval Office.

Sanford made his announcement outside the New Hampshire statehouse and cited the impeachment proceedings as reason.

“I’m going to suspend my campaign and I’m going to look for other ways to advance these incredibly timely and important but now out-of-season issues,” he said. “You gotta be a realist, and what I did not anticipate is an impeachment.”

Former Gov. Bill Weld who is also running against Trump, wished Sanford well, tweeting “@MarkSanford has always been a voice of intelligence & vision in a political arena where such qualities are increasingly scarce. I will miss seeing my old friend on the 2020 Presidential trail—but I know he will always be fighting in important ways for the country we both love.”
