Elizabeth Warren, who electrified progressives with her “plan for everything” and strong message of economic populism, dropped out of the Democratic presidential race on Thursday, according to a person familiar with her plans. The exit came days after the one-time frontrunner could not win a single Super Tuesday state, not even her own.
The person was not authorised to speak about Warren’s intentions and talked to The Associated Press news agency on the condition of anonymity.
Warren’s exit extinguished hopes that Democrats would get another try at putting a woman up against President Donald Trump.
