And then there were two! On Thursday, Elizabeth Warren announced that she is dropping out of the presidential race.
Warren decided to suspend her campaign just days after she failed to win her own state of Massachusetts on Super Tuesday.
Warren announced that she be suspending her campaign for President of the United States but declined to endorse either Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders who are fighting to become the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee.
It is worth noting that Tulsi Gabbard is still in the race.
The Massachusetts senator said in her remarks: “I want to start with the news. I want all of you to hear it first, and I want you to hear it straight from me: Today, I’m suspending our campaign for president. I know how hard all of you have worked. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything you have poured into this campaign. But I refuse to let disappointment blind me — or you — to what we’ve accomplished. We didn’t reach our goal, but what we have done together — what you have done — has made a lasting difference. It’s not the scale of the difference we wanted to make, but it matters — and the changes will have ripples for years to come.”
She went on to say: “What we have done — and the ideas we have launched into the world, the way we have fought this fight, the relationships we have built — will carry through, carry through for the rest of this election, and the one after that, and the one after that.”
She added: “Because for every young person who is drowning in student debt, for every family struggling to pay the bills on two incomes, for every mom worried about paying for prescriptions or putting food on the table, this fight goes on. For every immigrant and African American and Muslim and Jewish person and Latinx and trans woman who sees the rise in attacks on people who look or sound or worship like them, this fight goes on.”
Warren concluded by: “And for every person alarmed by the speed with which climate change is bearing down upon us, this fight goes on. And for every American who desperately wants to see our nation healed and some decency and honor restored to our government, this fight goes on. Mama leans over them and whispers, “Dream big.” And the children together reply, “Fight hard.” Our work continues, the fight goes on, and big dreams never die.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Biden and Sanders have reached out to Warren.
