What a busy night and morning we are having after the Iowa Caucuses have been completed.
First we saw Vivek bow out, gracefully I might add, and give his full support to President Trump.
But now we have another who has suspended their campaign.
Former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who President Trump likes to call “ADA” is dropping out:
BREAKING NEWS: Former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson dropped his long shot bid for the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday, ending a candidacy that served as a throwback to an earlier era of the GOP but ultimately failed to resonate.

Of course most people had no idea he was even still in the race — or was ever in the race except for President Trump sometimes mentioning him.
Hutchinson finished in 6th Place in Iowa, ahead of Chris Christie but behind some guy named Ryan Binkley who is even less notable than Hutchinson:
The Hutchinson campaign released this statement:
My Statement after the Iowa Caucus
“I congratulate Donald J. Trump for his win last night in Iowa and to the other candidates who competed and garnered delegate support. Today, I am suspending my campaign for President and driving back to Arkansas. My message of being a principled Republican with experience and telling the truth about the current front runner did not sell in Iowa. I stand by the campaign I ran. I answered every question, sounded the warning to the GOP about the risks in 2024 and presented hope for our country’s future. Susan and I are blessed beyond measure, and we are grateful for the opportunity to have fought in the political arena for America.”

No word yet on when Binkley will be dropping out, why he is in the race in the first place, or who he even is.
