TEXAS TRIBUNE: Jeb Bush ended his presidential campaign after the South Carolina GOP primary yielded unfavorable results for the former Florida governor.
'I’m proud of the campaign that we have run to unify the country. And to advocate for conservative solutions that would give more Americans the opportunity to rise up and reach their God-given potential. But the people of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina have spoken. I respect their decision. So, tonight, I am suspending my campaign,' Bush told supporters, in remarks distributed by his campaign.
Bush brought to the campaign an unrivaled political operation and dominated not just national fundraising but the donor landscape in his native Texas. But over the course of the last year, he steadily lost momentum and his footing as the party’s front-runner.
