Sam Brownback to drop out of the race

Good! It's about time we start clearing out the clutter and focus on the top-tier candidates:

Republican Sam Brownback will drop out of the 2008 presidential campaign on Friday, people close to the Kansas senator said Thursday.

Brownback, a longshot conservative contender, had trouble raising money to compete in the race. He is expected announce his withdrawal in Topeka, Kan.


Brownback, who is in his second term, had said in his first Senate campaign he would serve no more than two terms in Senate. He is widely expected to seek the Kansas governor's office in 2010.
If he wants to be president, it would be a good idea for him to be a governor for a couple terms and then run for president.
