Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke ends his presidential campaign.
In a statement to Medium, Beto thanked his supporters but acknowledged his bid for the presidency wasn’t going anywhere. He also suggested that the Democratic Party come together and support whomever is the nominee.
Though it is difficult to accept, it is clear to me now that this campaign does not have the means to move forward successfully. My service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee. Acknowledging this now is in the best interests of those in the campaign; it is in the best interests of this party as we seek to unify around a nominee; and it is in the best interests of the country.
