After a miserable Super Tuesday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren officially dropped out of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

*This is breaking news. Will update as needed.

From Fox News:

“I will not be running for president in 2020, but I guarantee I will stay in the fight for hardworking folks across this country who’ve gotten the short end of the stick over and over,” she vowed moments earlier. Appearing to choke up, she also spoke to how the presidential field is now male-dominated — with the exception of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard — and the prospects for a history-making first female president are essentially gone.

“One of the hardest parts of this is all those pinky promises and all those little girls who are gonna have to wait four more years,” Warren said, her voice cracking, referring to promises she often makes with young girls on the campaign trail about women running for president. “That’s gonna be hard. … I take those pinky promises seriously.”

Warren also addressed “sexism” in the race and promised she’d have “more to say” later.

“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 told staffers on the call. “What we have done – and the ideas we have launched into the world, the way we have fought this fight, the relationships we have built – will carry through, carry through for the rest of this election, and the one after that, and the one after that.”

Warren did not make an endorsement. She told reporters she needs “some space around this” and “take a little time to think a little more.”

Previous Reporting

Sources close to her campaign relayed the news to The New York Times and NBC News.

Warren came in third in her state of Massachusetts on Tuesday.

Warren has remained silent since Tuesday. Her campaign did not send out any fundraising emails. She went quiet on social media.

Now Warren has to decide on an endorsement. One person with her campaign said that she’s “contemplating not endorsing in the 2020 race.”
