Sen. Elizabeth Warren ended her campaign for the 2020 presidential race Thursday after a DISAPPOINTING Super Tuesday in which she COULDN’T even win her home state of Massachusetts.
The Massachusetts senator declined to make an endorsement at this stage.
“Not today,” Warren said, noting that she wanted more time to think about the decision.
Warren is considered closer to Sanders, at least in ideologically, but they had clashed in recent weeks and it remains to see if Warren will endorse Sanders.
“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.”
