Beto O’Rourke has just announced he’s ending his campaign for president on the Democratic side:

Beto’s polling numbers were dismal and have been for a long time. It was ridiculous that even thought he could win after losing to Cruz.
Beto was struggling so much that he started talking confiscation, thinking it would help him. But obviously, it didn’t. In fact Buttigieg, who criticized Beto’s position on confiscation, has risen in the polls in Iowa to within the top 3 or 4 candidates.
At the end of the day it’s one less socialist and one less gun-grabber running for president. And that’s a victory, albeit small, for the American people.
UPDATE: Trump responds…
Oh no, Beto just dropped out of race for President despite him saying he was “born for this.” I don’t think so!

To add to this, Beto say she’s not running for the Senate either. So I guess he wasn’t born for any of this LOL!
