Scott Walker's presidential campaign was shorter than Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kris Humphries

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) will reportedly end his 2016 presidential bid Monday evening amid dismal polling and donor discontent. It may feel like the race has already been going on for ages, but Walker only officially launched his campaign July 13 — 70 short days ago.

Perhaps Walker should have hung on another few days — then his run would have at least outlasted Kim Kardashian's 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries.

But if Walker's glass is half full, he might choose to focus on the fact that his campaign easily trumped (pun intended) Britney Spears' 55-hour marriage to Jason Alexander. On top of that, the governor's own marriage has lasted 22 years and counting.
