Former New York Gov. George Pataki informed in an ad that aired on local NBC affiliates Tuesday that he withdraws from the presidential race.
"I´m confident we can elect the right person, someone who will bring us together and who understands that politicians, including the president, must be the people´s servant and not their master," the 70-year-old explained.
Pataki, a central Republican, announced his candidacy for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination in May. He was the governor of New York during the September 11th terrorist attacks.
