Senator Elizabeth Warren suspended her United States presidential campaign after a disappointing Super Tuesday that included a third-place finish in her home state of Massachusetts.
The 70-year-old leader in report by news agency PTI , however, did not announce who she was endorsing for the Democratic presidential primaries, which have now been reduced to a direct contest between former US Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
“Today, I’m suspending our campaign for president,” Warren said, two days after she failed to win a single Super Tuesday State.
Speaking to reporters on Thursday in Massachusetts, Warren said she’d likely endorse one of the two major Democratic candidates left in the race, but “not today”.
“I need some space and I need a little time right now,” she said.
Warren is the fourth Democratic leader in the last one week to withdraw from the party’s race to the White House.
Biden had a convincing Democratic primary win in Massachusetts along with nine other Super Tuesday States.
A day before, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg had announced to withdraw from the race.
On the eve of the Super Tuesday, two other presidential aspirants Senator Amy Klobuchar and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg withdrew from the race. All three of them rallied behind Biden to help him win the Democratic party’s nomination and to challenge incumbent US President Donald Trump in the November elections.
