Beto O'Rourke ending presidential campaign

The Fox News host ended his mocking remembrance of the Texas congressman's campaign saying with a laugh his campaign was "a constellation of shallow, fragile dumb people talking to themselves". In the last fundraising quarter, his campaign raised $4.5 million, and he had yet to qualify for the November debate.

Beto O'Rourke has announced that he is falling by the wayside of the flee to was the Democrats' 2020 presidential contender.

Mr. O'Rourke canceled his speech at the dinner. Stunned supporters held back tears as they waited for O'Rourke to arrive.

"I had no idea this was coming". "I'm so heartbroken", she said. "My service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee", he added. Before cutting to various short, iPhone-shot clips from the campaign, Carlson remarked: "He just needed a camera that would show the rest of us what his life was like". Ted Cruz, O'Rourke jumped into the presidential pool with a big splash, appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair.

Democrat Beto O'Rourke has withdrawn his bid to become the next United States president.

O'Rourke was urged to run for president by many Democrats, including supporters of former US President Barack Obama, who were energized by his narrow Senate loss previous year in Texas, a reliably Republican state.

In August he attracted media attention when he accused US president Donald Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric for being partly responsible for an upswell of hatred and racial divisions that inspired a mass shooting that killed 22 people at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

"I chose to run for President because I believed that I could help bring a divided country together in common cause to confront the greatest set of challenges we've ever faced", O'Rourke wrote in his blog post.

In his farewell message, O'Rourke said he would support the Democratic nominee.

"I will not in any scenario run for the United States Senate", O'Rourke told MSNBC in August.

With you always, and forever grateful.

And proud to call them President in January 2021, because they will win.

Given O'Rourke's inability to make headway in the polls, it is not surprising that he is dropping out. But it also injected energy - and a central cause - into O'Rourke's flagging campaign. "To do so, the campaign has made a strategic decision to realign resources to go all-in on Iowa, resulting in office closures and staff realignments and reductions in New Hampshire".

He then restarted his campaign less than two weeks later. When he returned to the campaign trail, he reoriented his focus on gun control.

However, O'Rourke's campaign continued to struggle.

A number of 2020 Democratic candidates immediately thanked O'Rourke Friday for his candidacy.

The current frontrunners in the still-unwieldy field are former vice-president Joe Biden, senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana. "I look forward to working together in the fight to end gun violence". Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Sen.
