Brownback Bows out
Senator Brownback had several problems in his campaign. His campaign was based largely on strong family values which appeals to conservative voters, but his support for Shamnesty for illegal immigrants or as he would put it a path to citizenship undermined that appeal with the very people he was trying to get support from. End result, he was coming up short on fundraising and was unable to compete in the early Primary and Caucus states.
I only wish he would take the Isolationist Candidate (Ron Paul) with him.

People close to Senator Sam Brownback say the Kansas Republican will drop out of the 2008 presidential campaign Friday.
The longshot conservative contender had trouble raising money to compete in the race. He’s expected announce his withdrawal in Topeka.
Brownback raised about $800,000 in the third quarter of this year, his lowest quarterly amount since entering race. He has brought in more than $4 million overall and is eligible for $2 million in federal matching funds.
