Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren, once a frontrunner in the Democratic contest for the White House, will suspend her presidential campaign.
The New York Times reported on Thursday that Warren whose brand of big tech-busting and corruption-fighting progressive politics made her one of most popular contender for the US Presidential election is ending her campaign following a poor showing in several statewide votes this week.
As per the reports, the 70-year-old Warren will hold a call with her campaign management team and announce that she is suspending her bid for the Democratic party's presidential nomination. It should be mentioned that her Democratic nomination narrowed after the Massachusetts senator failed to win any early state contest, which also includes the Super Tuesday primary in her home state.
Warren's campaign mantra
In March 2019, Warren said her future administrative plan would include a "big structural change." She added that her administration would break up big tech companies such as Facebook, Google, Amazon and Apple.
She mentioned that "As these companies have grown larger and more powerful, they have used their resources and control over the way we use the Internet to squash small businesses and innovation."
In addition, she also said that to restore the balance of power in America's democracy, to promote competition and to ensure that the future generation of technology innovation is "As vibrant as the last, it's time to break up our biggest tech companies."
In January 2020, her campaign guaranteed not to employ disinformation tactics. The Massachusetts senator also announced that, if US elect her, she would "push for new laws that impose tough civil and criminal penalties for knowingly disseminating" harmful information.
After Mike Bloomberg, when Warren decided her exit from the US election race, the primary is now a two-person race between Senator Bernie Sanders and former vice president Joe Biden. The 77-year-old new frontrunner Biden dominated Super Tuesday, where he united support among the party's establishment, moderates and African-American voters.
As reported by Reuters, Warren said, "I was told when I first got into this, there are two lanes," and "I thought it was possible that wasn't the case, and there was more room to run a different kind of campaign. Apparently that wasn't the case."
The former bankruptcy law professor, who was largely responsible for creating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), did not immediately endorse either of her rivals. and mentioned that she would decide at a later time whether to do so.
While Biden called Warren the "fiercest of fighters" on Twitter, Sanders praised her work on women's rights, corruption and healthcare before making his pitch.
The US President Donald Trump told a Fox News town hall "If she's a true progressive, which probably she is, she should have dropped out three days ago. It would have been a whole different race." While indicating towards Warren and Sanders friendship, which developed cracks during the campaign, Trump said that "She did him no favours. That was not a good friendship."
