Warren Bows out of 2020 Presidential Race Leaving Biden, Sanders Taking the Lead in the Primary: Reports


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is leaving the presidential campaign trail.

The Massachusetts senator is suspending her presidential campaign on Thursday, following a week of several other presidential hopefuls bowing out, as The New York Times and NBC News both report.

Warren’s announcement comes a day after former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg dropped his presidential bid after showing disappointing results on Super Tuesday — where he hoped to capture voters.

Since other hopefuls dropped their bids, several have rallied around former Vice President Joe Biden, including, within this past week, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Mass.), as well as Bloomberg.

Biden’s endorsements come at a time that the former vice president saw his national support surge after winning the South Carolina primary. According to polls taken up until Tuesday, Biden held a razor-thin lead of roughly 2-points ahead of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). From Super Tuesday, Biden won 10 states so far while Sanders garnered four.

Warren’s exit from the race leaves Biden, Sanders, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (R-Hawaii), who is a lower polling contender.

It is unclear if Warren will endorse another 2020 Democratic presidential contender, who are vying to take on President Donald Trump in the November election.
