Elizabeth Warren Leaves 2020 Presidential Race

Her exit came after poor showings in crucial Super Tuesday contests

Senator Elizabeth Warren quit the Democratic presidential race on Thursday, leaving former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders as the last major contenders battling for the nomination to challenge President Donald Trump this fall.

“We didn’t reach our goal, but what we have done together – what you have done – has made a lasting difference,” Warren said on a call with her campaign staff ahead of the official announcement at an event in Massachusetts, according to a transcript provided by the campaign.

It was not immediately clear if the progressive Massachusetts senator planned to endorse one of her rivals, a move that could be pivotal as Biden and Sanders jockey for a delegate lead. Warren spoke to both candidates by phone on Wednesday, though none of the Democrats has said what was discussed.
