Gen. Wesley Clark to drop out of presidential race

Gen. Wesley Clark will drop out of the presidential race, the AP and CNN are now reporting. Clark will make the official announcement tomorrow in a speech from his home state of Arkansas. Clark only managed third place finishes in tonight’s Virginia and Tennessee primaries.

“Gen. Clark has decided to leave the race,” said Clark spokesman Matt Bennett. “I think probably the biggest reason is the tremendous momentum that Sen. Kerry built coming out of the Iowa and New Hampshire races.”

“The mountain got too steep to climb.” (source)
