Bobby Jindal Drops Out of Presidential Race

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal ended his presidential bid on Tuesday, telling Fox News' Bret Baier that "it is not my time."

Jindal had been trailing in the polls throughout much of the race. He launched his bid on June 24.

Speculation about the end of his campaign began in earnest a month ago, when he posted disappointing campaign fundraising totals.

In a statement, Jindal said the following:
"I cannot tell you what an honor it has been to run for President of the United States of America. My parents came to this country 45 years ago searching for freedom and a chance. When I was born, we lived in student housing at LSU, and never in their wildest dreams did they think their son would have the opportunity to serve as Governor of Louisiana or to run for President."

"They raised me to believe Americans can do anything, and they were right, we can. But this is not my time, so I am suspending my campaign for President.
