Gov. Scott Walker is dropping out, according to insiders. His press conference is scheduled for 6 p.m. Eastern time. Gov. Walker has shown enormous courage as governor of Wisconsin, and we applaud his recognition that he now has no path to the presidency.

An early adopter of the “truce strategy” downplaying social issues, Walker found himself caught between donors who have bad political instincts and voters clamoring for a genuine outsider.

Kudos to him for caring enough about his country to run and enough to drop out when voters’ rejection became clear.
