Pence is the first to bow out of the Republican primary but won’t be the last. The devil’s bargain Republicans cut with Donald Trump is methodically sucking the blood out of candidates one by one. The only question is who will be next.Pence will be the first current or former vice president of the binding primary era to seriously seek and then fail to gain his party’s nomination.
His candidacy has never found any ballast, and with fellow South Carolinian Nikki Haley locking down the remaining anti-Trump vote and donors while rising modestly in polls, it is no longer clear what exactly he is accomplishing by hanging around.The same could be said of both North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who have produced entertaining moments on stage but remain mired in the low single digits in national polling.
