US Prez poll 2016: Jeb Bush drops out of White House race


Columbia (South Carolina), Feb 21: Former governor of Florida Jeb Bush withdrew from the race for the American Presidency on Saturday after finishing fourth in the South Carolina Republican Primary.

"The people...have spoken and I am suspending my campaign," Bush told his supporters after getting 7.8 per cent votes, just better than the two bottom-ranked candidates John Kasich and Ben Carson.

Bush son and brother of two former presidents of the US, had promised to win South Carolina months back but failed to finish in the top three.

Bush's exit now leaves five Republican candidates in fray: Donald Trump, the winner of the South Carolina primary and with who the former had a serious clash ahead of the primary; Ted Cruz, John Kasich and Ben Carson.
