Elizabeth Warren, who electrified progressives with her “plan for everything” and strong message of economic populism, on Thursday told her staff she was dropping out of the Democratic presidential race. The exit came days after the onetime front-runner couldnt win a single Super Tuesday state, not even her own.
“I want to start with the news,” she said. “I want all of you to hear it first, and I want you to hear it straight from me: today, Im suspending our campaign for president.”
She went on to acknowledge the personal sacrifices those on her campaign had made and to thank them “from the bottom of my heart”.
“I know how hard all of you have worked. I know how you disrupted your lives to be part of this. I know you have families and loved ones you could have spent more time with. You missed them and they missed you. And I know you have sacrificed to be here.”
Warren will make an official public announcement later today, her campaign said.
Her withdrawal from the race for the top spot on the Democratic ticket against President Donald Trump in November comes after she failed to win a single state on Super Tuesday, including her own, Massachusetts.
Trump responded to Warren's withdrawal with a tweet mocking her and Bloomberg.
