Rand Paul Drops out of 2016 Presidential Race

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is dropping out of the 2016 race for President. 

Paul said in a statement that he will focus his attention on his Senate re-election campaign in Kentucky. 

The 52-year-old is favored to win that race. 

The first-term Senator exists the race having never caught on with Republican voters, who have made billionaire businessman Donald Trump the front-runner in the race for the party’s nomination. 

Meanwhile, Florida Senator Marco Rubio says he will now try to persuade some of Paul’s supporters to redirect their support to him, despite the differences the two have on foreign policy.
