Donald Trump

However, he also dropped out of the campaign on the day of the New Hampshire Primary. He also mentioned that he did not have enough support to get delegates, which was not feasible for the campaign.

John Delaney centered his presidential campaign around getting in early. He started in July 2017. He dropped out of the presidential campaign just days before the Iowa caucus.
