WASHINGTON D.C. (AP/WEHT)- Senator Elizabeth Warren has ended her presidential campaign. This comes after Warren’s dismal showing on super Tuesday.
Warren dropped out despite earlier assertions she would stay in the race until the Democratic National Convention.
Warren came in third in her home state of Massachusetts, third in Iowa, fourth in New Hampshire and Nevada, and a distant fifth in South Carolina.
Warren said she needs some time to think before endorsing another candidate for president.
Warren says, “Not today. 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.”
The senator told supporters she refuses “Let disappointment blind” her.
Warren’s voice cracked when she talked about meeting so many little girls while campaigning around the country for the past year and knowing they “Are going to have to wait four more years,” at least, to see a woman in the white house.
