Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick has decided to end his campaign to become the 46th President of the United States of America. Patrick made this decision after last night’s primaries in the state of New Hampshire. The former governor earned less than 1% of the vote and 1,254 votes. By deciding to end his campaign, Patrick joins two fellow candidates who dropped out last night, Andrew Yang and Michael Bennet.
Patrick joined the campaign trail late last year. At the time he entered the race, there were more than a dozen viable candidates within the race. Unfortunately, he never qualified for any of the recent debates.
I didn’t discover injustice just lately. I lived it, I fought against it, and I won.
We need to offer the American people a proposal that doesn’t just help them get even. We need to offer them one that helps them get better. pic.twitter.com/V0BMzhr5OA

Prior to entering the race, Patrick served as the 71st Governor of Massachusetts from 2007 until 2015. After serving as governor, rumors circulated about a possible presidential bid in 2016, but Patrick ruled it out.
Beyond his political career, he is currently married with two kids. There is no word yet on his future plans and goals.
