Atlanta, GA: Bobby Jindal (R) ended his presidential campaign on Tuesday.
“I’ve come to the realization that this is not my time, so I’ve come here to announce that I am suspending my campaign for president of the United States,” he told Fox News’ Bret Baier.
The Louisiana’s governor had launched a historic bid for the US presidency in June recalling his parents’ journey to the land of “real opportunities” yet seeking to distance himself from his heritage, painting himself as a doer among a crowd of talkers as he became the first Indian-American and the 13th Republican to join the 2016 White House race.
Once considered a rising star of the Republican party, he has lost support within his own party too which he once chided to stop being the “stupid party. His persistently low polling numbers relegated him to the smaller televised events that preceded each of the main GOP debates.
