Tim Ryan Drops Out of 2020 Presidential Race
On Thursday, Rep. Tim Ryan announced he will exit the 2020 presidential race.
“After seven long months of hard work, I will be returning home to my family and friends and community in Ohio to run for reelection for my congressional seat,” Ryan said.
I’m announcing today that I am withdrawing from the Presidential campaign.
I got into this race in April to really give voice to the forgotten people of our country. I look forward to continuing that fight.
Thank you, to everyone who supported this campaign. pic.twitter.com/BT4z3fQ205
