DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Republican Mike Huckabee says he’s ending his second bid for the White House.
The former Arkansas governor writes on Twitter that he’s “officially suspending my campaign.”
He’s thanking his backers for their loyal support, adding the hashtag #ImWithHuck.
He joined the race last May, with an announcement in the hometown he shares with former President Bill Clinton.
But Huckabee became just one candidate in a crowded field that included many political newcomers.
