The incredibly heartbreaking reason why 'Bachelorette' frontrunner had to exit the show

Michael A., a single dad to a 4-year-old son named James, stole America's hearts with his genuinely kind heart, hilarious dad jokes and, sadly, his tragic story of losing his wife to cancer several years prior. However, despite being a frontrunner in the competition, after his heartbreaking FaceTime call with his son, during which James told his father, "I know what the problem is. Maybe Daddy left because he don't want to see me," Michael A. realized he had to do what's best for his family.

"We've gone through everything together. To go through losing a mother, I don't want him to ever think that he's not enough. It's a lot. I feel conflicted. I feel guilty. I feel selfish. I don't know what to do. I knew this road would be painful, and pain is something I can take. When it starts to affect my son, that's when everything changes," shared Michael A.

Soon after the call, Michael A. visited Katie in her suite to deliver her the news that he would be saying goodbye and heading home early.

"With Hometowns coming up, I feel like it's wrong for me to give you half of what I could be. And it kills me because I see so much with us," Michael A. told Katie. "You know, my decision to leave hurts you too. But I'm going home because my beautiful boy needs his dad."

For Katie, saying goodbye to Michael A. ahead of hometowns was both shocking and devastating because she legitimately saw herself walking away with him.

"Our connection is still there, and our connection is unexplored," explained Katie. "It's just hard to know the impact of him leaving right now. Michael is someone I saw myself walking away with. I knew what my life would be if I chose Michael, and that was a life I wanted."

Katie also stated, "I know his decision is the best decision for his family, but right now in this moment, it hurts, and in this moment, I am mad. I am sad. All I'm looking for is to be in love and find my person, and it's very possible that my person just left."

Meanwhile, tears were flowing on Twitter, as Bachelor Nation found themselves torn between wanting Michael A. to become the next Bachelor, and not wanting him to miss any more time with his son.

But everything happens for a reason and, ultimately, during Monday night's Men Tell All, Katie had no regrets. After learning that Michael A. said he'd be open to a second chance with Katie, The Bachelorette star shared, "I have nothing but love and respect for Michael but, ultimately, you know, I could not dwell on the past. I had to continue to move forward, and my ending is ultimately how everything was supposed to happen. You know, I'm a big believer in everything happens for a reason, and that's something I still believe in to this day."

So it seems Katie's Bachelorette journey may have still ended in an engagement, but we'll just have to wait to find out.

Nearly three months after the crowded race in Texas' 6th Congressional District advanced into a runoff between two Republicans -- Susan Wright and state Rep. Jake Ellzey -- the major theme of the contest remains the same: will former President Donald Trump's influence translate into victory on the campaign trail? In April, Trump endorsed Susan Wright -- the widow of the late Congressman Ron Wright who died in February after suffering from COVID-19 and complications from cancer -- before the special election even took place. In the leadup to Tuesday's contest, Trump publicly reiterated his support for Wright in a statement, saying she "supports America First policies" which earned her his "Complete and Total Endorsement."

Most Republicans want former President Donald Trump to have at least some influence over their party's direction even as many who side with the GOP say they are uneasy about its future. Just 15% approve of the way Biden is handling his job, and 66% continue to say the Democrat was illegitimately elected, a lie perpetuated by Trump that underscores his persistent grip on GOP voters. Republicans have plenty of concern about their own party, too.
