Elizabeth Warren Ends 2020 US Presidential Bid After Super Tuesday Rout

Elizabeth Warren, who electrified progressives with her “plan for everything” and strong message of economic populism, dropped out of the US Democratic presidential race on Thursday, according to a person familiar with her plans. The exit came days after the one-time front-runner couldn't win a single Super Tuesday state, not even her own.

The person wasn't authorised to speak about Warren's intentions and talked to The Associated Press 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.
