Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is set to withdraw from the presidential race on Monday night, according to media reports.
Walker is scheduled to hold a press conference in Madison, Wisconsin, at 6 p.m. ET to announce his exit from the race.
Once considered a frontrunner for the GOP nomination, a series of missteps and the rise of outsiders like Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson, have taken a toll. Add to that a lackluster performance in last week’s GOP debate in Simi Valley, California, and his candidacy sank.
A CNN/ORC poll out this weekend found Walker drawing less than one-half of one percent of GOP primary voters.
Representatives for Walker have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
