Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren announced on Thursday that she is suspending her bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination.
The “hardest part,” Warren said in later remarks to the press, is “all those little girls who are going to have to wait four more years” for the opportunity to see a female president.
“We have also shown that it is possible to inspire people with big ideas, possible to call out what’s wrong and to lay out a path to make this country live up to its promise.
We have also shown that race and justice — economic justice, social justice, environmental justice, criminal justice — are not an afterthought, but are at the heart of everything that we do.
We have shown that a woman can stand up, hold her ground, and stay true to herself — no matter what.”
Warren declined to offer an endorsement in the Democratic nomination contest when asked by the media.
