Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) ended his latecomer White House bid Wednesday, the morning after an abysmal showing in the New Hampshire presidential primary.

Patrick announced the end of his campaign around noon. “The vote in New Hampshire last night was not enough for us to create the practical wind at the campaign’s back to go on to the next round of voting,” he wrote an email statement. “So I have decided to suspend the campaign, effective immediately.” . . .

. . . Patrick came in ninth place in the Granite State’s primary, garnering barely 0.4 percent support and barely cracking 1,000 votes. More votes were cast for write-in candidates; Patrick only outperformed Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO).

Both Andrew Yang and Bennet ended their respective campaign’s Tuesday night following sub-par performances in the first two primary contests in the nation.

Andrew Yang (D) is suspending his presidential campaign, according to multiple reports.

The presidential candidate is suspending his presidential campaign and is formally announcing his decision during a speech in New Hampshire Tuesday night. . . .

. . . “I will support whoever is the Democratic nominee,” Yang said as he addressed his supporters Tuesday evening. “That said, I hope this campaign can be a message and a word of caution and guidance to my Democratic colleagues that Donald Trump is not the cause of all of our problems,” . . .

Suspend? Why can’t they be honest and just say they quit?

I’m not 100% sure but i think they still get access to remaining campaign money if they just “suspend”
