Williamson announced the end of her campaign Friday in a message thanking her supporters. She said she’d accomplished her aim of taking “advantage of every possible effort to share our message.” That message largely centered around turning “love into a political force.”
Now, she said, she doesn’t want to get between the voters and the better-performing progressive candidates they may support once she moves on.
“The ideas we discussed are important, and I hope they’ll find seed in other ways and in other campaigns,” Williamson said, noting in particular her platforms that waged “an agenda for peace and making humanity itself America’s greatest ally.”
She also mentioned her proposals for reparations and “initiating a season of moral repair.”
