John Edwards has thrown in the towel in race to become the Democratic candidate for President.
Democrat John Edwards is exiting the race for the White House after failing to win any of the four party nomination contests held so far, officials say.
Members of his team said the former North Carolina senator had decided not to continue to Super Tuesday next week. He lost Iowa’s caucuses, came third in New Hampshire, admitted getting his “butt kicked” in Nevada and came third in his native South Carolina. [Via BBC News]
He’s expected to make a statement at 7pm (our time) tonight but the big question is who will he endorse, Clinton or Obama?
Update: Here’s his speech announcing his departure from the running.
