NBC News reports:
Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld on Wednesday became the last major Republican primary challenger to President Donald Trump to exit the race, a day after Trump became the party’s presumptive nominee.
“I hereby announce that I am suspending my candidacy for president of the United States, effective immediately,” Weld said in a statement. “I am immensely grateful to all the patriotic women and men who have stood with me during the past eleven months in our effort to bring better government to Washington, D.C.”
“Two years ago I became concerned enough about the future of this country to begin exploring the possibility of running for president,” he continued. “It is a job I feel certain I have the experience and vision to do.”
