Jeb Bush suspends presidential campaign after disappointing South Carolina finish

NH1.com

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Jeb Bush has dropped out of the Republican race for president, ending a bid that drew a staggering level of financial support from donors but failed to win over voters angry with Washington and leery of sending another member of the Bush family to the White House.

“The people of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina have spoken, and I truly respect their decision. And so tonight, I am suspending my campaign," Bush said.

Just before Bush's announcement, Donald Trump was called to win the South Carolina Republican primary.

Trump also won in New Hampshire.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio are in close race for second.
