And then were were twenty two.
The democratic race for the presidency has been overrun with far-left progressives hoping to cash in on the “resistance” rabble rousers who seem to dominate social media. They came in droves, each with a unique take on why Donald Trump is the most loathsome President of all time. This race isn’t so much about what these politicos and business executives hope to accomplish as it is about who they’re not.
And that is perhaps why so few have had mainstream success.
Now, as this litany of liberals begins to whittle itself down, yet another of the low-polling democrats is throwing in the towel.
The environmental activist had urged the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to host a debate centered exclusively on climate change — only to fail to qualify to meet polling thresholds needed to attend the party’s upcoming regularly scheduled debate, as well as a CNN town hall dedicated to global warming.
Inslee revealed his decision on MSNBC, saying it’s become clear that he won’t win. He has kept the option of running for a third term as governor open throughout his presidential campaign but didn’t immediately say what his political plans were.
Inslee, 68, became the third Democrat to end his presidential bid after U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell of California pulled out of the primary last month followed by former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper last week.
Even more embarrassing for Inslee, who built his campaign around his battle against climate change, is the fact that his announcement came mere hours after a major policy disclosure by his campaign that focused on the subject of global warming.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
