From the comments:

as bad as it sounded, i didn't think it'd be enough to knock him out of the race. go figure.
I thought the same thing. The easy explanation is that the IL GOP simply didn't like him and used this scandal to attempt to replace him with someone more Barak-resistant.

I wonder, however.

He won that primary fair and square (and soundly, if I remember), he has been working his ass off for a really long time and spending a lot of money. It seems odd that a guy with such a successful resume would just... give up. So I have to think: whatever he thought was going to happen between now and November if he stayed in the race had to be worse than just giving up. And it's interesting to ponder what that might be.

It's a shame guys like this don't win more elections.
