Report: George Pataki, who was running for president, is no longer running for president.

The Boston Globe’s James Pindell says that the former New York governor informed prominent New Hampshire supporters that he would be leaving the race this afternoon. 

If Pindell’s report is accurate, Pataki probably didn’t spend very much time on the phone—according to Real Clear Politics’s aggregate poll, zero percent of New Hampshire voters support his candidacy. That lack of support comes despite the fact that Pataki had put all of his eggs in the New Hampshire basket and wasn’t doing much campaigning anywhere else. In February, The Daily Beast reported that he wouldn’t take calls from the national press—he would only speak to reporters in New Hampshire.
