(CNN) – Michigan Rep. Thaddeus McCotter ended his presidential bid Thursday, after struggling to secure a foothold in the race for the 2012 GOP nomination.
“Today, effective immediately, I have withdrawn my candidacy to become the Republican Party’s nominee for the Office of President of the United States of America," he said in a statement.
“I have decided to seek re-election to continue to serve as your United States Representative for Michigan’s new 11th Congressional District; and, I am committed to promoting and implementing a platform of principled conservatism."
