On Tuesday, October 20th, former Virginia Senator Jim Webb announced that he is ending his campaign for the Democratic Presidential Nomination. He did state however that he may run an independent campaign for the Presidency. In the first Democratic debate, Webb unfortunately didn’t get to speak very much. But whenever he was asked a question, he seemed to avoid it or answer a completely different question entirely. Later that week, on Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden ended the rumors of his Presidential campaign by officially announcing that he will not run for President. He said that it was simply too late in the race to start his campaign. Finally, because this just seems to be the week to drop out of campaigns, Lincoln Chafee announced at a forum on Friday that he will be withdrawing from the race as well. He said that he had a winning agenda, but not enough traction to win the race, only getting about 1% of the polls. As of now the only Democratic Presidential Candidates are O’Malley, Sanders and Clinton.
