Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts plans to drop out of the presidential race on Thursday and will inform her staff of her plans later this morning, according to a person close to her, ending a run defined by an avalanche of policy plans that aimed to pull the Democratic Party to the left and appealed to enough voters to make her briefly a front-runner last fall, but that proved unable to translate excitement from elite progressives into backing from the party’s more working-class and diverse base.
I have nothing much else to add, but a deep, exasperated and prolonged *sigh* that will be heard by no one. Elizabeth Warren was too good for this race. We didn’t deserve her. But she inspired a ton of people, and she single-handedly destroyed Michael Bloomberg’s campaign. We may look back on that debate one day as the defining moment of the campaign because it could eventually lead to victory for Democrats in November. So, thanks for that, Warren, who I expect will remain a vocal and brilliant critic of Donald Trump.
It will be interesting to see who she endorses, because for the remaining states I think that endorsement will actually mean a lot.
Update: As for that endorsement? She’s even got a plan FOR THAT.
3. The NYT is reporting that Warren doesn't plan on endorsing when she speaks to the press later today. I'm not surprised, I've been told that IF she endorses it'll be after a serious political/policy discussion and negotiation with Biden and Sanders.— Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) March 5, 2020
Update #2: Ouch.
This was the ticket . 🥺 https://t.co/j0zqOjlfzy— Janelle Monáe, Cindi (@JanelleMonae) March 5, 2020
