North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum on Monday has announced he is ending his 2024 presidential campaign.
The governor entered the race in June as a long-shot and never was able to reach above the single digits in the polls.
"We launched our campaign for President on June 7 clear-eyed about our mission: bring a business leader and proven governor's voice to the fight for the best of America," his campaign said Monday when it announced his withdrawal from the race.
Burgum is the seventh republican 2024 presidential candidate to drop or suspend their 2024 presidential campaigns.
Others before Burgum who ended their campaigns include: Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, former Vice President Mike Pence, South Carolina U.S. Senator Tim Scott, former Texas Congressman Will Hurd, conservative host Larry Elder, and businessman Perry Johnson.
The fourth Republican presidential primary debate is scheduled for Dec. 6.
Former U.S. Ambassador to the UN and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Pharma businessman Vivek Ramaswamy and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie are expected to be on the debate stage on Wednesday night.
Former President Donald Trump is not expected to participate.
