Longshot Presidential Candidate Drops Out, Endorses Trump

Ryan who? That was my response when I read this report initially.

Ryan Binkley, who never gained any traction during this primary election, has dropped out of the Republican race.

Binkley did not even register on the radar, yet he waited until a few days before Super Tuesday to end his campaign.

I’m Out

It was apparent after New Hampshire that Binkley was swimming upstream here.

Binkley issued a $10 million loan to his campaign, and after the four early-voting states were done with their election, he had about 2,000 votes collectively.

You would have thought he would have gotten the hint after New Hampshire, where he only received 315 votes, but he kept soldiering on.

He was asked what it would take for him to leave the race after that debacle, and Binkley responded, “God would just have to speak to me and tell me to end it.”

Apparently, God spoke to him because he dropped out of the race this week and endorsed Trump going out the door, for whatever that is worth.

He stated, “Throughout my campaign, I have seen our party struggle to find a place for a new vision while weighing the corrupt allegations and indictments against President Trump.

“He will need everyone’s support, and he will have mine moving forward.”

I am sure that Trump will give him a nod at some point, but this, at least to me, was a vanity campaign that only a rich person could run.

While Binkley’s net worth is not published, it has to be considerable to flush $10 million on a campaign that had no shot from the outset.

Or perhaps he was just waiting for this moment to get some extra recognition for endorsing Trump in the hopes of landing a Cabinet position or one of those juicy ambassador positions.

Or maybe he just wanted to tell his friends, “Yeah, I ran for president once and made it to Super Tuesday.”
