Given the stream of contradictory information coming from the Dean camp perhaps this is not the final word, but the AP is reporting that Howard Dean is ending his presidential run.
WASHINGTON (AP) – Howard Dean will end his campaign for the presidential nomination and oversee a new effort to keep his issues alive and his supporters organized on behalf of Democratic causes, two party officials said Wednesday.
Dean was to announce his plans at a news conference Wednesday afternoon, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The sources said the shape of the new effort is still to be determined but that Dean would eventually support the Democratic Party’s nominee. One official said Dean would help elect Democrats to Congress in the fall.Other than opposing the war in Iraq, can anyone actually remember one of “his” issues?
