Former Vice President Mike Pence announced he was ending his presidential campaign on Saturday during a speech in Las Vegas.
“After much prayer and deliberation, I have decided to suspend my campaign for president effective today,” Pence said at the Republican Jewish Coalition gathering in Las Vegas , according to The Associated Press. “We always knew this would be an uphill battle, but I have no regrets.”
Pence announced his campaign launch in a video on June 7, saying, “We can turn this country around, today, our party and our country need a leader who will appeal, as Lincoln said, to the better angels of our nature.”
The former president’s campaign never took off as low approval ratings and his fallout with his former boss, Donald Trump, plagued his short-lived campaign.
