Here’s who just dropped out…
Washington State Governor Jay Inslee stated he was withdrawing from the race for the 2020 U.S. Democratic presidential nomination.
While speaking on MSNBC, Inslee said it had become clear he would not be the party’s standard-bearer and that he was pulling out of the race.
“It’s become clear that I’m not going to be carrying the ball, I’m not going to be the president, so I’m withdrawing tonight from the race,” he told Maddow.
In a letter to supporters, Inslee said he was not meeting the polling threshold set by the Democratic National Committee to quality for debates in the fall.
“As a result, I don’t believe we can compete for the attention and exposure needed to have a reasonable shot at the nomination,” he said.
Inslee announced his bid for the Democratic nomination on March 1, with a campaign centered on fighting climate change.
Throughout his campaign he failed to get any traction to kickstart is campaign polling at 0.2 percent nationally.
