Elizabeth Warren finally dropped out of the 2020 presidential race on Thursday.
After her dismal showing on Super Tuesday, particularly with her embarrassing loss in Massachusetts, this was inevitable.
Warren spoke to the press outside her home in Cambridge, MA.
Elizabeth Warren drops out
Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the Democratic primary Thursday after losing across the map on Super Tuesday, including in her home state of Massachusetts.
“I want to start with the news,” Warren said in a conference call with all of her staff that POLITICO listened in on. “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.”
A choked up Roger Lau, her campaign manager, followed Warren’s remarks by saying: “Thank you for dreaming so f—— big, thank you for fighting so f—— hard,” a colorful spin on Warren’s “Dream Big. Fight Hard” slogan.
Warren’s campaign had signaled as recently as Sunday that she would stay in the race all the way to the Democratic convention this summer. But her dismal performance this week combined with Joe Biden’s resurgence led her to conclude that she no longer had a viable path forward.

Some people on the left are crying sexism.
Worth reposting this idea:
If Elizabeth Warren was a 78 year old with crazy hair, a rumpled suit, had just had a heart attack and yelled constantly about revolution, would she have even made it this far?
Now you see how sexism and misogyny work.

They do realize this is a Democrat primary, right?
Elizabeth Warren fans are out here acting like nasty Republican sexism is the reason for her campaign’s demise. You people realize Democrats are the ones voting in your primaries?

Sexism had nothing to do with it.
Warren was a poor candidate who didn’t appeal to enough voters. Plain and simple.
