As Freddie Mercury once said...
This time, it's Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina.
Boy, a lot of big names that looked very promising just a short while ago are now officially nowhere to be seen in the Republican primary race.
Remember Mike Pence, America's former Vice President?
He's already gone.
Larry Elder? The radio star who almost became California's governor?
He's out too.
Tim Scott couldn't stand the heat anymore. The heat on his wallet and the people running his campaign, primarily.
Campaigns are a LOT of work and they cost a LOT of money.
Scott realized that he probably wasn't catching up to the frontrunner in this race, so he had a decision to make.
Fans of Scott will say that he isn't quitting, he's just preserving resources.
If Tim Scott ever wants to make a run like this again in the future, it would be wise to not go broke trying to do it this time around.
Unfortunately for Tim Scott, circumstances outside of his control have pretty much prevented any other Republican from being anywhere near the level of popularity that Donald Trump is currently enjoying.
Without Donald Trump showing up to the debates, it would be hard for any candidate to catch him.
I'm not saying that Scott didn't definitely have his strong points, the biggest applause of the entire third debate may have been when Senator Scott said in his closing statement that his administration would make men play sports against other men.
The crowd actually went so wild that Scott had to stop speaking until the applause died down so that he could be heard again.
But it was also going to be an uphill battle for Tim Scott, especially once Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, and even Vivek Ramaswamy started to separate themselves from the rest of the Trump challengers.
Chris Christie and Tim Scott felt like afterthoughts at the last debate.
Tim Scott realized what that meant.
