Former New York Gov. George Pataki is suspending his presidential campaign, he announced in a video message Tuesday evening.
“While tonight is the end of my journey for the White House, as I suspend my campaign for president, I’m confident we can elect the right person — someone who will bring us together and who understands that politicians, including the president, must be the people’s servant, and not their master,” Pataki said in the message, which aired on NBC affiliates in New Hampshire, Iowa and South Carolina.
