It’s news, but it’s not news, it’s just reporting of the inevitable.
The story from Fox News:
Republican presidential candidate Tom Tancredo plans to drop out of the race during an announcement Thursday afternoon in Des Moines, Iowa, GOP sources close to the campaign have told FOX News.
Tancredo, who has aggressively pushed his anti-illegal immigration message throughout the GOP primary race, has not been able to break through in the polls against his better known competitors. He and California Rep. Duncan Hunter typically poll in the single digits behind Texas Rep. Ron Paul in national surveys.
Tancredo would not personally confirm whether he will pull out of the race.
â€œI will neither confirm nor deny that report,â€ Tancredo told FOX News. But he added, â€œI wouldnâ€™t have a press conference if I didnâ€™t have anything to say.â€
I’m sure it’s official, he’s probably out. It was basically inevitable from the start since he never had major support. I’ll update this tomorrow with press conference video of the announcement.
It’s official, here’s the post with details and his farewell video:
