Oh no!

Republican presidential candidate and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is suspending his campaign:
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is suspending his presidential campaign today, effectively ending a once-promising GOP presidential bid that collapsed over the summer, according to several Republicans briefed on his plans. He planned to deliver the news at a 5 p.m. CT press conference in Madison, Wis.

...On key issues of the day — from calls to end birthright citizenship to the jailing of a Kentucky county official who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses — Walker struggled more than other candidates to clearly explain where he stands.

On several issues, he attempted to not take a side — including when asked earlier this month what he would do to directly address the crisis facing Europe as hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria and other war-torn countries search for a safe place to live. Walker said the United States must fight the Islamic State, which he said is at the root of the crisis, but he wouldn't take a stance beyond that.
What a crying shame. Who would have thought that building a career out of dumpster diving behind the Indiana Governor's mansion for your policy ideas and then refusing to actually elucidate any positions on the national stage would have resulted in a terrible, laughable, pathetic attempt to run for president of a global superpower?


Good riddance to you, Scott Walker, and I'm sorry you're still stuck with him, Wisconsin.

And then there were fifteen.
