Not what one would call "unexpected". Even without going the ideological route, no-one really expected an 89-year-old to even come close to getting on the debate stage, let alone win.

And apparently, he never intended to win, anyways.

Maybe not quite the Pat Paulson of this cycle, but it's good to know that the "protest candidate" still exists in US politics....and can get some headlines....

(and that makes 23 left, although I'm hearing some rumbles off in Hickenlooper's direction....)

The Traveller
a fan since '68....

"Reputation is what others think about you. Honor is what you know about yourself. The friction tends to arise when the two are not the same.... Guard your honor; let your reputation fall where it may."

Actually, that makes 24 left:

1. Bennet
2. Biden
3. Booker
4. Bullock
5. Buttigieg
6. Castro
7. de Blasio
8. Delaney
9. Gabbard
10. Gillibrand
11. Harris
12. Hickenlooper
13. Inslee
14. Klobuchar
15. Messam
16. Moulton
17. O'Rourke
18. Ryan
19. Sanders
20. Sestak
21. Steyer
22. Warren
23. Williamson
24. Yang

Three candidates who had announced have now withdrawn - Ojeda, Swallwell, and now Gravel. The number never got higher than 25 at any one time, because Steyer didn't actually join the race until the day after Swalwell dropped out.
