Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush on Saturday withdrew from his race for the White House after he lost the South Carolina primary.

"The people of Iowa and New Hampshire and South Carolina have spoken, and I really respect their decision," said Bush to supporters after a disappointing finish in South Carolina on Saturday night.

Results with 82 percent of all votes counted so far showed that Bush garnered only 8.1 percent of the vote with a distant fourth-place finish.

Though entering the race in June as an early favorite of the Republican Party, Bush's presidential candidacy stumbled along the way since last fall after Donald Trump, the billionaire developer from New York, attacked Bush as of "low-energy," a mockery that resonated with Republican voters.
