Author Marianne Williamson ended her pursuit of the Democratic presidential nomination Friday, concluding a freaky campaign that will be remembered (to the extent it is remembered at all) for the odd soundbites Williamson provided in debates and interviews.
In a Facebook statement, Williamson said she was suspending her campaign, because she would not be able to get enough votes to "elevate our conversation any more than it is now". Williamson has barely registered in the polls since launching their offer and has trouble collecting donations President last January.
The candidate had trouble gaining traction during her campaign road due to her crunchy, "psychic" approach to America's issues, as well as a thinner-stated platform than the other potential Dem nominees.More news: IPhones with Faulty Smart Battery Case to Get Replacements
"I ran for president to help forge another direction for our country", Williamson said in a post on the website.
Williamson announced her campaign to run for U.S. president on 29 January 2019.
Williamson, 67, who has always polled the bottom of the Democratic pack of potential candidates, said that she "stayed in the running to take advantage of all possible efforts to share our message", but that it has become clear that 'she will have enough votes to get the 2020 nomination. Things are changing swiftly and dramatically in this country, and I have faith that something is awakening among us.More news: Rahul Dravid celebrating his birthday today, Sachin and Sehwag wished this way
Williamson grew up in Houston attending Congregation Beth Yeshurun, a Conservative synagogue where she also went to Hebrew school. She met the polling and fundraising thresholds for the first Democratic debate earlier than seasoned lawmakers like Sen.
Her sign off on Friday mirrored her campaign message: "A politics of conscience is still yet possible".
