Cryptic Tweet Sparks Speculation Over Chafee Campaign Future

Oct 23, 2015

Former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee is expected to make an announcement about his bid for the Presidential nomination today.

The democrat penned a cryptic tweet Wednesday night writing, “I look forward to speaking at DNC Women’s Forum tomorrow morning. I’ll address my future in the campaign there.” The vague tweet has some speculating whether the candidate will drop out of the race.

Chafee has been polling at less than one percent in some primary states. He came under fire by national and local commentators following his performance during the first Democratic debate earlier this month. With little monetary support, and slight campaign infrastructure, his campaign has been classified by some as “Quixotic.”
