2016 GOP South Carolina primary

Jeb Bush drops out of presidential race

After a massively disappointing presidential run, Jeb Bush announced Saturday night in South Carolina that he is suspending his campaign. Bush said he was proud of his campaign and the fact that he "stood his ground," and hoped that conservatives would use the ideas he shared on the trail as blueprints for the future.

"When I began this journey in Miami I committed that I would campaign as I would serve — going everywhere, speaking to everyone, keeping my word, facing the issues without flinching, staying true to what I believe," he said.

Bush, once the presumed frontrunner, came in sixth place in Iowa, fourth in New Hampshire, and is fighting for fourth in South Carolina.
