After stirring up some dust but not actually gaining ground in his Democratic primary run, Beto O’Rourke is calling it quits.
Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke dropped out of the 2020 presidential race on Friday after a disappointing campaign that failed to build off the momentum generated from his longshot Texas Senate run.
“Though today we are suspending this campaign, let us each continue our commitment to the country in whatever capacity we can,” he wrote in an email to supporters.
Lagging in the polls and with fundraising, O’Rourke had yet to qualify for the Nov. 20 debate sponsored by MSNBC and The Washington Post.
