Michigan's Thaddeus McCotter drops his bid for president
U.S. Reprsentative Thaddeus McCotter (R-Livonia) has dropped his bid for the Republican presidential nominiation.
From the Detroit News:
Livonia Rep. Thaddeus McCotter told The Detroit News this afternoon that he is leaving the race for the Republican presidential nomination after he failed to win access to the Republican presidential debates.
"If they keep you out of the debates, you are out of the conversation and you can't run," McCotter said. "It was sort of death by media."
McCotter says he will give his support to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the Michigan native, and will likely run again for the 11th District congressional seat he's held since 2003.
