Description(CNN) -- Rep. Dick Gephardt, a fourth-place finisher in the Iowa caucuses where he once had been considered the man to beat, formally announced Tuesday he is withdrawing from the Democratic presidential race.

"Today my pursuit of the presidency has reached its end," Gephardt said during a news conference in his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. "I'm withdrawing as a candidate and returning to private life after a long time in the warm light of public service."

On Monday night, CNN projected that Gephardt was the choice of only 11 percent of Iowa caucus-goers, while 38 percent chose Sen. John Kerry, 32 percent were for Sen. John Edwards and 18 percent went for former Vermont governor Howard Dean.
