Vilsack Expected to Withdraw from Race

According to campaign sources, Tom Vilsack will be withdrawing from the race for the Democratic Nomination for President.

Vilsack will be holding a press conference this morning, 11.30 CST to make the announcement.

It is understood that Vilsack has struggled to compete with the better known candidates, Clinton, Obama and Edwards. Even in Iowa, his home state, he is well behind in the polls.

Vilsack was considered by John Kerry as a Vice Presidential candidate in 2004 before opting for John Edwards.

His decision to withdraw now could keep him in contention as a VP candidate in 2008.
