September 22, 2015 (San Diego’s East County)--Another GOP Republican candidate has dropped out dropped out of the running to become the next president.

Former Wisconsin Governor and Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker has confirmed he has indeed removed his name from the field to become president.

According to the New York Times, Walker is asking his fellow Republicans to figure out “how to make things better for everyone” instead of focusing on “how bad things are.”

“I encourage other Republican candidates to consider doing the same,” he said, “so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates, who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner,” an apparent reference to Donald Trump.

According to Fox News Channel, Walker’s rivals did not seem to believe that he was dropping out, even some of them seem shocked by the news. “Holy cow,” Senator Ted Cruz said on Fox News.

Walker was best known for his union-busting tactics targeting public workers as Governor of Wisconsin.

The other Republican candidate who has dropped out of the presidential race is former Texas Governor Rick Perry.

Both were polling in single digits in national polls when they announced plans to pull out of the race.
