I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Another One Bites The Dust

The Associated Press is reporting that Sam Brownback will drop out of the Republican Presidential race tomorrow:

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Republican presidential hopeful Sam Brownback, dogged by low poll numbers and a poor fundraising showing last quarter, has decided to abandon his bid for the White House, people close to the senator tell the Associated Press.

Meanwhile, a campaign source tells CNN’s Chief National Correspondent John King that all scheduling has been put on hold pending a “major announcement” from the Kansas Republican.

Brownback, who had hoped to win the support of social conservatives, raised only $926,000 for his bid in the third quarter, significantly trailing the Republican frontrunners.

Not a surprise at all of course.

The next dominoes to fall: Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo.
