Republican candidates stop, slow campaigns

In the aftermath of the Iowa Caucuses, the Republican presidential race is thinning.

Immediately after the caucuses, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee suspended his campaign. Now, Sen. Rand Paul, MD, (R-Ky.), has officially dropped out of the race as well.

"It's been an incredible honor to run a principled campaign for the White House,” Sen. Paul said in a statement, according to CNN. "Today, I will end where I began, ready and willing to fight for the cause of Liberty."

Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) hasn't called it quits yet, but at a Bloomberg Politics breakfast Wednesday morning said he is prepared to drop out if he does poorly in New Hampshire. "If we don't do well, we're not going to be dragging around like some band of minstrels who beg people to come to our show," Gov. Kasich said, according to Bloomberg.

After placing 11th in Monday's caucuses, Rick Santorum will delay events Wednesday in South Carolina to do "media activities" in Washington, according to Bloomberg. He won the Iowa Caucuses in 2012.
