One of the longest shots in the field has finally called it quits.
I would actually imagine that most people did not even realize this man was running for president.
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez has suspended his presidential campaign, reported Breitbart.
Never Had a Chance
Not to take anything away from Suarez, but entering this presidential race was a huge mistake from the start.
The man is fighting off a massive corruption scandal, then he decides to bring an even bigger spotlight on himself by throwing his hat into the ring.
He was banking on gaining traction as the only Latino candidate, but the corruption surely scared off most people, and his campaign never gathered any steam.
Even so, he remained cocky, telling NBC News only a week before the debate, “I’m going to make that debate stage, I can tell you that.” But he didn’t.
I will give him props for living up to his own words, however.
During the Iowa State Fair, the told reporters, “I’ve sort of always agreed with that. If you can’t meet the minimum thresholds, you shouldn’t be trying to take time and volume away from people that do.
“I don’t think candidates should just sort of linger around if they don’t have a credible path.”
Suarez also posted a statement on Twitter after dropping out…

You have to have a big profile to even make a dent in a presidential election, as we are seeing yet again this year.
DeSantis, for all the accolades, is getting utterly destroyed by Trump, and nobody else is within shouting distance.
While there is all kinds of fuss about Ramaswamy, he has not cracked double digits and is slowly being exposed as a bit of a fraud.
Even Nikky Haley, a former governor and UN Ambassador, is struggling, so I am not sure what Suarez was thinking by even getting into this race.
Novelty is great, but when Joe Biden beats a full field, it just tells you that voters want familiarity, not new faces, which is actually quite a shame.
