Kevin O'Leary drops out of Conservative leadership race

Shark Tank star and businessman Kevin O'Leary has dropped out of the Conservative Party of Canada's leadership race, ending his bid to become the country's next Prime Minister.

Conservative Party leadership candidate Maxime Bernier (left) looks on as Kevin O'Leary addresses a news conference in Toronto, Wednesday, April 26, 2017.

Although O'Leary is now endorsing Bernier, Lang isn't switching his support to the Quebec MP.

His plan was to target voters in the 18-to-35 demographic and convince them to first join the Conservative party, and then to back him in 2019 for prime minister. It is not known who was behind the attempt to fraudulently register Conservative supporters.

When he learned that ballots had already been printed and mailed, he chose to act, picking up a phone at 1:30 a.m.to call Bernier, a longtime Quebec MP, to pledge his support.

Rains Help Winter Wheat, Delay Corn Planting in Kansas
The most active corn contract for July delivery fell 5 cents, or 1.34 percent, to settle at 3.6675 dollars per bushel. The agency rated the state's winter wheat crop as 6 percent excellent, 45 percent good and 33 percent fair.

The thought of his two adult children buried by that kind of debt was unthinkable, O'Leary said.

Some reporters questioned whether O'Leary might have ultimately just decided he was more interested in focusing on his position as an American media personality. This can not be allowed to happen.

During the race, he faced criticism for skipping other debates and then popping up on USA cable news. "As someone who was born in Montreal, I had hoped I would do much better there", O'Leary said in a statement, just hours after informing his campaign team of his decision.

February 27: Condemns Liberal government's contribution of money to Bombardier, says he would end "corporate welfare". His name will also remain on the ballot as the deadline to take it off has long passed.

O'Leary's lack of French knowledge going into the election may be one of his reasons for struggling in the province.

Conservative leadership candidate Kevin O'Leary repeatedly said the next federal election would be an "exorcism".

"This is an opportunity for me to do something I don't believe any Canadians had an opportunity to do", O'Leary said in an interview earlier this year with The Canadian Press.

There's no guarantee that O'Leary's support will go to Bernier and none of his supporters are obligated to do so.

"This is awful!" Facebook visitor Nathan Welbourn wrote on O'Leary's page after the news was posted. "Trudeau? I'm better known in the USA than he is". "And the likelihood of gaining a lot of seats in Quebec is low".

O'Leary threw his endorsement behind Maxime Bernier, a Member of Parliament from Quebec, on Wednesday.
