Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is expected to announce that he is withdrawing as a candidate in the 2016 U.S. presidential race. Diane Hodges reports.
Republican Governor Scott Walker plans to drop out of the 2016 U.S. presidential race after deciding he has no path to win his party's nomination, a Republican familiar with the decision said on Monday. Walker's campaign announced he would hold a news conference Monday, but it did not say what he would discuss. Walker, who gained national attention for fighting unions in his state and surviving a heated recall election in 2012, struggled to distinguish himself in a crowded Republican field. He received 3 percent of support in a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll of the Republican field.
