Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker ended his campaign for president Monday after the early momentum he had when he entered the race evaporated, leaving him, according to a new CNN poll, with the support of one-half of one percent of Republican primary voters.

Walker becomes the second member of the crowded field of GOP candidates to drop out, following former Texas Governor Rick Perry. His presidential campaign lasted only three months, a disappointing result for someone who became a national star in the conservative movement after his battle against unions and Democrats in Wisconsin.
