Senator Elizabeth Warren announced March 5 that she is ending her presidential campaign.
“I will not be running for president in 2020, but I guarantee I will stay in the fight for the hardworking folks across this country who have gotten the short end of the stick over and over,” she said.
Warren made the announcement outside of her Cambridge, Massachusetts home this afternoon. Although she came in third on Super Tuesday in her home state, she said she’s grateful to the people of Massachusetts.
“They’re the reason I’m in this fight, and the reason I’m able to stand here today,” she said.
The Democrat, who’s represented her state for the past eight years in the Senate, said she has no regrets. She also has no endorsement announcement, yet.
“Not today,” she explained. “I need some space around this, and I want to take a little time to think a little more. I’ve been spending a lot of time right now on the question of suspending, and also making sure that this works as best we can for our staff, for our team, for our volunteers.”
Warren also mentioned the little girls who will have to wait four more years for the possibility of a female president. Another former candidate — Senator Kamala Harris — talked about the challenges of women running for president.
“The reality is, that there’s still a lot of work to be done to make it very clear that women are exceptionally qualified and capable of being the Commander in Chief of the United States of America,” she said.
Meanwhile, the current Commander in Chief had this to say in a tweet:
“Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren, who was going nowhere except into mini Mike’s head, just dropped out of the Democrat primary…three days too late. She cost crazy Bernie, at least, Massachusetts, Minnesota and Texas. Probably cost him the nomination! Came in third in Mass.”
