It looks like the United Kingdom has its new prime minister, now that Theresa May is the only candidate left. Her opponent, Andrea Leadsom, ended her campaign Monday.
Leadsom said: "Theresa May carries over 60 percent of support from the Parliamentary party. She is ideally placed to implement Brexit on the best possible terms for the British people, and she has promised that she will do so."
The day before her withdrawal, Leadsom apologized to May for her controversial argument that being a mother would make her a better prime minister.
