The candidate who said he didn't get enough time is dropping out of the Democratic race.

"Now, I know that my time's run out," Jim Webb said.

"You agreed to these rules, and you're wasting time, so if you would, finish your answer," Anderson Cooper said.

"Now this hasn't been equal time," Webb said.

"I hope I get that kind of time here," Webb said.

"I've been waiting for 10 minutes," he said.

"I'm withdrawing from the consideration of being the Democratic Party's nomination for the president. ... I'm not going away. I'm thinking about all of my options," Webb said.

Now, he's exploring a third-party run. Maybe he'll get more time as an Independent.

"When the leading candidate gets 32 minutes and the way the questions were asked were designed to do that, then I don't think that's a very fair process," Webb said.
