The announcement comes after president cleared the number of delegates needed to be the GOP nominee.
SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Former Gov. Bill Weld has ended his bid to challenge President Trump for the Republican presidential nomination.

In a statement Wednesday, Weld said he would suspend his bid after the president cleared the number of delegates needed to be the GOP nominee.

Weld faced an uphill battle since his bid began last April. President Trump's popularity within the party and the cancellation of several GOP primaries and caucuses stopped Weld's campaign from gaining any steam.

Weld, a former governor and 2016 vice presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party, is President Trump's last primary challenger to exit the race. Former Rep. Joe Walsh and former Gov. Mark Sanford already ended their bids.
