Clark Officially Bows Out of Race

February 11, 2004 - Posted at 3:20 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Wesley Clark says he's ending his presidential campaign "even more committed to building a better America."

Clark told supporters in Little Rock, Arkansas, that he is ending his candidacy after losses yesterday in Virginia and Tennessee.

But he says his cause continues.  That cause, says Clark, "is the campaign for America's future."

Clark says there are three million lost jobs, exploding deficits, 44 million Americans without health insurance and U.S. soldiers "bogged down in the wrong war."

He also called President Bush's foreign policy "fatally flawed."  And he called on Democrats to challenge Bush on it.

In his speech, Clark applauded former rivals John Kerry, Howard Dean and John Edwards, saying they are good men and that the country is well-served by them.

And he thanked his wife of 36 years for her support.  The retired general called her "the general's general."
