Chafee ends bid for President

Former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee has ended his bid for the 2016 Presidency Friday.   

Chafee made the announcement on his website and also at a speech at the DNC Women's Leadership Committee. 

“As you know I have been campaigning on a platform of prosperity through peace,” Chafee said. “But after much thought I have decided to end my campaign for president today.”

Chafee's announcement comes on the heels of Jim Webb's exit for the Democratic nomination earlier this week.
