Republican Sen. Rand Paul dropped his 2016 campaign for president Wednesday, eclipsed by other candidates who kept his base of support from growing into a viable force in the crowded 2016 field.

He is now expected to turn his full attention to his Senate re-election campaign in Kentucky. The 52-year-old ophthalmologist is favored to win that race.

"It's been an incredible honor to run a principled campaign for the White House," Paul said in statement.

"The fight is far from over," he said. "I will continue to carry the torch for Liberty in the United States Senate and I look forward to earning the privilege to represent the people of Kentucky for another term."
Awwwwww. And I was really looking forward to hearing more from this pro-freedom anti-choice hero about how my ladybrain isn't sophisticated enough to comprehend why reproductive choice isn't a fundamental component of my liberty.
