(CNN) – Rep. Duncan Hunter will continue his bid for the Republican presidential nomination despite his last place finish Thursday in the Iowa caucuses, his campaign manager tells CNN.
“Absolutely, he is staying in,” Roy Tyler, the California Republican’s top aide, said in an interview late Thursday night. “We actually predicted we would not do well in Iowa. We were not expecting a lot. That is why we did not put a lot of resources into there.”
Hunter only received 1 percent support in the caucuses. The California Republican has already announced he will retire from Congress at the end of the year.
