Warren ends Presidential bid

BOSTON, Mass. (AP) – The once-crowded Democratic presidential candidate field is now down to basically two after Elizabeth Warren announced she is dropping out of the race.

The U.S. senator from Massachusetts issued a statement to her staff, saying that she was dropping out of the presidential race.

“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,” Warren announced in a statement.

“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,” she said. “So from the bottom of my heart,  thank you, for everything you have poured into this campaign.”

She didn’t win a state on Super Tuesday two days ago and lost her home state. She trailed Biden and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders by wide margins in several cases.

She joins former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who dropped out Wednesday, and last week the mayor from Indiana Pete Buttigieg and U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar unexpectedly dropped from the race.

All three have endorsed Biden.

Warren spoke to both Biden and Sanders Thursday, but would not be making an endorsement yet while she assesses who will be best to uphold the issues she supports.
