Lincoln Chafee Drops Out Of Presidential Race

And nobody was surprised. Via CNN:

Former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee ended his long-shot bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination Friday, his campaign announced in a statement. Chafee is set to speak on his decision momentarily at the DNC’s annual Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington. “As you know I have been campaigning on a platform of Prosperity Through Peace,” Chafee is expected to say according to prepared remarks provided by the campaign. “But after much thought I have decided to end my campaign for president today. I would like to take this opportunity one last time to advocate for a chance be given to peace.” The Democrat declared his presidential campaign in June, shortly after announcing that he had formed an exploratory committee.

How long will Martin O’Malley hang on?
