GOP presidential candidate Tim Scott announced a sudden end to his campaign late Sunday night.
The surprise announcement shocked both his donors and staffers.
“I love America more today than I did on May 22nd,” Scott told Trey Gowdy on Fox News.
“But when I go back to Iowa, it will not be as a presidential candidate. I am suspending my campaign,” he added.
Gowdy, a former South Carolina Congressman, appeared thoroughly surprised by Tim Scott’s announcement.
