Brownback will announce Friday he's bowing out of the presidential race.
MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (CNN) – Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback, who was hoping his social conservative credentials would help him win the Republican presidential nomination, will announce Friday his decision to abandon his White House bid, well-placed Republican sources tell CNN.
The sources tell CNN Chief National Correspondent John King that Brownback plans to bow out of the race Friday and that the announcement will be made back home in Kansas. They also tell CNN that the Brownback campaign has less than $100,000 of cash on hand left in the bank and little prospect of improving fundraising due to the senator’s low poll numbers. The sources say that they know of no immediate plans for Brownback to endorse another Republican candidate, but note that the senator has said he would support the eventual GOP presidential nominee.
