Paul released a statement early today.
“It’s been an incredible honor to run a principled campaign for the White House,” Paul said in a statement. “Today, I will end where I began, ready and willing to fight for the cause of Liberty.”
Paul finished fifth in Monday’s Iowa caucuses with 4.5 percent of the vote — behind rivals Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, Marco Rubio and Ben Carson.
“Although, today I will suspend my campaign for President, the fight is far from over,” Paul continued. “I will continue to carry the torch for Liberty in the United States Senate and I look forward to earning the privilege to represent the people of Kentucky for another term.”
Thanks again to the people of Iowa. It was great getting to meet you & I am especially grateful for the enthusiasm of students! Fight on!
