Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has dropped out of the 2020 race for president of the United States.
Warren, 70, announced she was suspending her campaign on Thursday, March 5, a day after Mike Bloomberg ended his run after spending $500 million of his pocket change.
“I know that when we set out, this was not the call you ever wanted to hear,” Warren said in a phone call to her staff. “It is not the call I ever wanted to make.”
Warren, once a frontrunner, was tripped up by her own lies and a mountain of half-truths. She once lied about being American Indian on a Harvard job application. She was forced to come clean after she announced she was running for president.
At times Warren was neck and neck with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. She was heavily criticized for not dropping out of the race before Super Tuesday to give Sanders more delegates. And she was once favored over the DNC’s current favorite, Joe Biden.
The Democratic nomination is a 2-man race between Biden, 77, who is showing advanced signs of dementia, and Sanders, 78, who dubbed himself a Democratic socialist.
